BiodivERsA has published a new guide for scientists and researchers. The guide aims to help researchers increase the quality of their research proposals in terms of policy relevance. In addition, the guide will likely be helpful in the context of calls for research proposals in other fields than biodiversity, launched by initiatives having the same expectations as BiodivERsA regarding policy relevance of research.
The objectives of the guide are to help researchers to:
- Better understand what is policy relevance of research
- Be aware of what the criteria are for evaluating policy relevance of research in BiodivERsA calls
- Be able to more efficiently identify the most relevant policies and policy-making bodies for a given research project
