Integrating Soil Biodiversity into Ecosystem Services

Work Packages

The project activities are managed in so-called Work Packages (WPs). SOB4ES is set up around six such WPs. Different partners take the lead on achieving different tasks within a particular WP while ensuring close collaboration with other institutions and across the different WPs.
