The project is to develop an integrated operational framework and system models. This framework can be used to monitor the impact of alternative agricultural and environmental policies for sustainable development in Europe. Project SEAMLESS develop an integrated operational framework called SEAMLESS-IF. This system will include models to simulate impacts on the environment and the economy, the impact of agriculture on sustainable development including social impacts, and will be evaluated in different territorial units from the farm to the global perspective, enabling two-way analysis. To facilitate control of a combination of quantitative, biophysical and economic models and databases will be used in innovative software architecture, and these tools will be used after the completion of a research project.
