Forthcoming BiodivERsA Pan-European call for research proposals on:
“Invasive Species and Biological Invasions”
Following the yearly update of their common agenda to support European biodiversity research, the BiodivERsA partners have decided to launch their fourth joint call for research proposals on “Invasive Species and Biological Invasions” with a focus on alien invasive species, planned to be launched in early November 2012, with a closing date in mid-February 2013.
Scientific teams will be invited to form transnational research consortia with teams from at least two other countries also participating in the call.
The research proposals will be evaluated across criteria of scientific excellence and policy relevance. It is also expected that the pan-European dimension of the projects will provide added value to the research carried out.
Countries that expressed a preliminary interest in participating in the call (i.e. with funding available) are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Turkey.
This pre-announcement will be updated regularly on this web site until the publication date of the call to inform potential applicants on the scientific themes of the call and to confirm the participation of countries.
