Biodiversa+ call for proposals on biodiversity 2021-2022

A call on biodiversity has been recently launched by the European Biodiversity Partnership (former BiodivERsA).

The call is entitled “Supporting the protection of biodiversity and ecosystems across land and sea” and is focused on the protection of biodiversity in the wild. The call covers all environments, i.e. terrestrial, freshwater and marine.

Research teams are invited to form transnational research consortia with eligible partners from minimum 3 countries participating in the call (including minimum two from EU Member States or EU Associated Countries). The call also covers research on biodiversity conservation in the Outermost Regions (ORs) of the EU.

A Biodiversa+ formal launch event is planned on 17-18 November 2021. You can register to the event and find more information about the call here.
