Funded under: FP6-COORDINATION

Abstract

This is a brochure for the BIODIVERSA project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). Funding agencies from 15 European Union (EU) countries established BIODIVERSA to develop coordination of biodiversity research programmes in Europe. They examined their funding and management mechanisms and policies in an attempt to agree common strategies, common systems and best practice. To achieve coordination in policies and practice the consortium compiled a compendium of planned and existing FP6 programmes and also collected data on the funding of biodiversity projects in developing countries. This information formed the core of a searchable database that provided funding organisations all over Europe with comprehensive information on research taking place and the funding mechanisms behind it.
