ReCAP will train a novel type of Phosphorus (P) specialist with the capacity to approach future societal P challenges in truly-interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary ways, by investigating the required solutions that integrate and move beyond the current approaches to the Global Phosphorus Challenge (GPC).
This unique approach is the only way to disentangle the complex relationship of the GPC to secure agricultural productivity as well as a clean environment, a strong green economy and a closed P cycle.
