BiodivERsA’s third joint call funded nine research projects of scientific excellence and policy relevance for a total amount of 8.8M€. The call addressed the three following themes:
1/ Developing integrated biodiversity scenarios
2/ Understanding and predicting biodiversity resilience and tipping points
3/ Decision support for biodiversity policy and management
The kick-off meeting organised in Almeria (Spain) was the opportunity for a presentation of each projects and two keynote addresses.
For detailed information on the call, its implementation and results, please see the call brochure available HERE in PDF.
