Biodiversity and climate change : results of the last BiodivERsA Call available!

BiodivERsA is pleased to announce the results of the BiodivClim 2019-2020 Call for research projects on “Biodiversity and climate change”

Climate Change and Environment
Fundamental Research

In the context of its BiodivClim COFUND Action, BiodivERsA launched in September 2019 a joint call to support research on “Biodiversity and climate change”. The call was co-funded by the European Commission and covered four non-exclusive themes: · Consequences of climate change on biodiversity and nature’s contributions to people · Climate-biodiversity feedback processes · Potential of nature-based solutions for mitigating and adapting to climate change · Synergies and trade-offs between policies on biodiversity, climate and other relevant sectors, and the role of agents of change. In total, 231 pre-proposals and 82 eligible full proposals were received and evaluated by an independent Evaluation Committee who ranked the projects. Strictly following the ranking established by the Evaluation Committee, 21 research projects were shortlisted and recommended for funding by the BiodivClim Call Steering Committee – composed of all the funding organisations participating to the call – representing a total funding amount of over 25Mio€ (including funding from European Commission). Find out more on the 21 shortlisted research projects on the BiodivERsA website. >> https://www.biodiversa.org/2019-call
