Rejuvenate Project launched: Crop Based Systems
for Sustainable Risk Based Land Management for Economically
Marginal Degraded Areas
The Rejuvenate project began in October 2008. The aims of this project are to:  
•	explore the feasibility of a range of possible approaches to combining risk based land management (RBLM) with non-food crop land-uses and organic matter 
re-use as appropriate, • identify a “matrix” of potential opportunities worthy of further development in the UK, Germany and Sweden and in a wider European context, and • assess how verification of their performance might be carried out and identifying what requirements remain for future research, development and demonstration.
Rejuvenate includes partners from Germany, the UK, the Netherlands and Sweden and began in October 2008. It is funded by the Department for Environment Food
and Rural Affaires and the Environment Agency (UK) and FORMAS (Sweden) and Bioclear Bv (The Netherlands). It is funded under the SNOWMAN umbrella, (http://www.snowman-era.net).
SNOWMAN is a network of national funding organisations and administrations providing research funding. It is one amongst more than 70 ERA-Nets (European
Research Area - Networks) being funded by the EC's 6th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.
