WP1 is dedicated to coordination and management.
WP2 collects data on case study farms, from databases and from OTICE, the online barn climate and emission control tool.
These data are then fed into WP3 for detailed modelling analysis on carbon and nutrient utilization and circularity of mixed farming systems for dairy production.
WP4 brings WP2 and WP3 together for a multi-criteria assessment of mixed farming systems for dairy production based on indicators for circularity and efficient resource use developed in WP2 and WP3.
WP5 details a range of communication and dissemination activities and hosts the interactive web application – the MilKey/DairyMix platform – to analyse farm data and to evaluate effects of changes in farming practice at farm and regional level with regard to environmental, economic and societal sustainability indicators. This output will have farmers and other stakeholders in the primary sector as target group, and is relevant for society and policy makers. All WPs are closely interconnected and collaboration between them is ensured via the stringent coordination and management plan.
