The research project ELaN aimed at coupling technological innovations for water, nutrient and carbon management together with organisational innovations for an adapted land management. This went along with innovations of socio-economic forms of governance for the implementation and economical valuation of those combined model solutions. They included the use of purified waste water in order to support the landscape water balance and the cultivation of energy plants.

These local model solutions were developed further to regional systems solutions of sustainable land use in close co-ordination with stakeholders. The resilience and sustainability of model and system solutions were ensured by an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary knowledge management.
