EKLIPSE is developing a European Mechanism to answer requests from policy makers and other societal actors on biodiversity and ecosystem services related issues. A large part of the EKLIPSE budget is made available to the wider community through open calls so that policy-makers and other societal actors can tell us what they need, and can discuss with us how we can best meet their needs to make better decisions for our environment.
Our recent call for requests ‘EKLIPSE invites knowledge requests from consortia representing policy, research, NGOs; or individual applications from policy or other societal actors’ resulted in the following three open “Calls for Knowledge” which we would like to draw your attention to:
- Is missing knowledge hampering the effectiveness of approaches that aim to restore biodiversity and ecosystem service function and services?
- How can we better integrate research and knowledge on biodiversity and ecosystem services from the global to the European level, and vice versa?
- How are European energy policies affecting biodiversity and ecosystem services in countries globally?
If you would like to participate in any of these calls, we kindly invite you to take a look at the relevant call text and to visit our EKLIPSE KNOCK Forum where knowledge holders can contribute and engage with each other about these and other topics. Please also feel free to forward this information to any colleagues who may be interested.
We are at your disposal to answer any questions you may have regarding EKLIPSE and its process. If you would like to be informed on the current and future processes of EKLIPSE we kindly invite you to subscribe to our keep-me-posted.
