Every Horizon Europe-funded project has the work structured in Work Packages (WPs) that contain objectives, tasks and deliverables (some might be public some might be considered sensitive).

Below you will find a list of all WPs in trans4num. We will update the list with relevant documents that link to the deliverables as soon as they will be available.



  • Develop a conceptual framework;
  • Develop joint methodological approaches and conceptual frames for the interdisciplinary analyses of NBS across sites;
  • Outline option for transformation pathways for trans4num NBS sites;
  • Develop transdisciplinary approaches for sound stakeholder involvement and responsible NBS innovation processes.


T1.1 Develop a conceptual framework based on the state of the art

T1.2 Develop nested frames and approaches for the interdisciplinary analyses if NBS across sites and scales

T1.3 Review transformation pathways, hindering and fostering factors for applying innovative NBS with SET approach

T1.4 Tailoring of transdisciplinary research approach and interactive stakeholder involvement


D1.1 Report on conceptual grounds and common understandings

D1.3 Report on interdisciplinary conceptual approach

D1.5 Report on interdisciplinary conceptual approach – update

D1.6 Report on transformation pathways towards innovative NBS

D1.7 Workshop report on food system assessment methods



  • Quantitatively and qualitatively describe important nutrient management-related challenges typical for the selected sites, and characterise possible corresponding NBS with respect to their biophysical, agronomic, and farm management implications at field and farm level;
  • Select, implement, test and evaluate selected NBS on the study sites;
  • Provide a multi-perspective appraisal for an out- and upscaling of selected NBS with respect to professional communities, AKIS stakeholders and further actors of concerned value chains.

  • Realise an efficient and low-cost monitoring of nutrient flows from NBS using satellite data and the establishment of a pipeline of satellite data to support targeted modelling and decisions support systems;
  • Develop a decision support system for optimum N and P supply at local, regional and watershed level, taking into account local farm nutrient management plans for different agricultural practices (conventional, organic and agroecological);
  • Test and evaluate the decision support system in each of the case regions in order to assess and understand the performance and merits of the specific NBS for nutrient management;
  • Inspire young farmers, students and professionals across Europe and China, in hackathons including fields of IT, agriculture and interdisciplinary teams dealing with NBS for nutrient management in agriculture.

  • Measure the sustainability impact and upscaling potential of key nature-based nutrient management strategies in the NBS case studies focusing on value-chain-level effects of improved agricultural practices and related institutional support mechanisms, e.g., certification schemes;
  • Improve the understanding of the entire food system in the NBS sites in Europe and China to identify the option space for transformational change in nutrient management;
  • Create a comprehensive understanding of the multi-level, multi-actor transformative learning and social innovation process necessary to support the NBS related agricultural practices;
