• Identify key conditions of agricultural land systems that allow systems to shift towards sustainable intensification states
  • Explore triggers and transition pathways towards sustainable intensification states
  • Develop and operationalize sustainability indicators that reflect a land use system’s position in a space of production intensity, ecological resilience and socio-economic viability, which together determine a region’s adaptive capacity towards sustainable intensification
  • Draw upon real-world, operational exemplars, to understand how conditions, triggers and pathways interact, and how they link to value chains and valorisation
  • Embed developments in sustainable intensification pathways in larger contexts (landscape, national, EU and global) to understand the potential of up- and out-scaling of regional best-practice examples
