BiodivERsA – £14 Million for Biodiversity Research

BiodivERsA, a new network of 19 public research funding bodies, across 14 European countries, has launched a joint call for international research projects on biodiversity, linking scientific advancement to policy and practice. Almost £14 million is available under the scheme, with DEFRA and NERC as the UK partners.
The call is open to research on all ecosystems and organisms addressing at least one of three thematic areas:
– Global change and biodiversity dynamics
– Ecosystem functioning
– Ecosystem services
Both science and policy aspects must be addressed within the proposal.
Applications are invited from those employed by an eligible organisation in one of the countries participating in BiodivERsA, whose work involves at least three countries also part of the network.
