Joint BiodivERsA-Belmont Forum Call on
Scenarios of Biodiversity and Ecosystem services

This call was launched in collaboration with the Belmont Forum.

BiodivScen is co-funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme as an ERA-NET COFUND.

Together with the Belmont Forum, BiodivERsA launched a call to support research on scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services. This international call gathered 26 funding agencies from 23 countries and was co-funded by the European Commission.

The call covered the two following themes:

  • Theme #1: Development and application of scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services across spatial scales of relevance to multiple types of decisions
  • Theme #2: Consideration of multiple dimensions of biodiversity and ecosystem services in biodiversity scenario.

Strictly following the ranking established by an independant Panel of Experts, the BiodivScen Group of Coordinators – composed of partners participating to the call – recommended for funding 21 research projects for a total of over 28 Million €.
