This major integrated modelling initiative is funded jointly with Macronutrient Cycles, Defra, the Scottish Government and underpinned by the Environment Agency. It has been awarded to a large consortium of modellers from across the UK and led by Professor Bridget Emmett at CEH, Bangor.

The project will create a community forum to prioritise modelling needs and a modelling framework hosted on a robust platform to facilitate greater sharing and linking of data and models.

The overall objective is to promote a change in culture towards greater collaborative working and improved accessibility and effective use of existing models and tools in an integrated fashion.
