Database: http://www.biodiversa.org/database BiodivERsA has developed a database holding information about: • Funding programs and associated calls for research proposals on biodiversity and associated ecosystem services in Europe; this includes thematic programs devoted to biodiversity, thematic programs including biodiversity issues, and blue-sky programs where biodiversity research applications are eligible; grants, fellowships and studentships are also referenced. Focus is on competitive funds only, excluding e.g. funding by national institutes of the part of the scientific community they are in charge of, or schemes that fund local research teams only; • Research projects on biodiversity and associated ecosystem services funded through these programmes; • Research institutes and other organisations (including stakeholders) involved in the projects funded, and researchers leading the projects. Find the analysis of the database: http://www.biodiversa.org/1655/download In 2016, the BiodivERsA database underwent an important update which resulted in the publication, in 2018, of a revision of the analyses of the funding landscape, based on the new data. In this updated brochure, we studied 6650 projects funded over the 2005-2015 period by 18 national funding agencies/ministries that are main competitive funding sources for research on biodiversity and ecosystem services at the national scale in Europe, or by the European Commission.
