Results of the joint Belmont Forum-BiodivERsA Call for proposals on biodiversity scenarios

Results of the joint Belmont Forum-BiodivERsA Call for proposals on biodiversity scenarios
21 international projects recommended for funding for over 28 Million euro!

In October 2017, the Belmont Forum and BiodivERsA launched the BiodivScen joint call on “Scenarios of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services” with the support of the European Commission.

Supported by 26 national/regional funding organisations from 23 countries, this international call covered the two following themes:

  • Development and application of scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services across spatial scales of relevance to multiple types of decisions; 
  • Consideration of multiple dimensions of biodiversity and ecosystem services in biodiversity scenarios.

In total, 143 pre-proposals were received. Following an eligibility check, 135 full proposals were finally received and evaluated by an independent Panel of Experts who ranked the projects. According to this ranking, 21 top research projects have been shortlisted and proposed for funding (among which 4 are presently on a waiting list), representing a total funding amount of over 28 Mio € (including funding from European Commission).

The 21 shortlisted projects are academically excellent projects, mobilizing a wide range of disciplines, engaging many relevant stakeholders, and addressing various pressing scientific and societal issues.

The final list of funded projects will be definitely known upon national decisions by BiodivScen partners, in October at the latest (i.e., at this stage, the list presented below is a list of projects proposed for funding rather than funded for sure).

The shortlisted projects, with countries involved -coordinators being indicated in bold- are the following:
