In the global setting of the International Nitrogen Initiative (INI), the European Centre facilitates enhanced cooperation and integration among European researchers, policy makers and practitioners on environmental issues related to reactive nitrogen. INI-Europe represents a region that is characterized by agronomic challenges posed by high population density and the associated large food demand, but a declining economic share of agriculture. It is largely an area of excess nitrogen, a fact that is increasingly being recognized by stakeholders and environmental policy. INI-Europe aims to promote awareness building and to provide scientific information to stakeholders and the policy process, in order to facilitate implementation of measures to reduce environmental nitrogen loads and associated impacts.
