The LUMOSpro-project aims to provide theoretical foundations and practical adaptations of land use models for the Netherlands in order to improve and stimulate the use of these models in (spatial) policy discussions. In order to reach this goal, the project will deal with a number of weak points in the existing knowledge infrastructure, in particular the scientific foundations, the practical implementation and the fortification of education and training in modeling.
