The Call Joint Transnational 2023 of the co-funded European Partnership Biodiversa+ for funding transnational research and innovation projects was launched yesterday, 11 September.
This year, Call BiodivNBS - "Nature-based solutions for biodiversity, human well-being and transformative change" is launching 3 themes with funding from FCT:
- Synergies and trade-offs of Nature-based solutions in the context of human well-being;
- Nature-based solutions mitigating anthropogenic drivers of biodiversity loss;
- The contribution of Nature-based solutions for just transformative change.
The initiative covers the whole range of domains - terrestrial, marine, aquatic and ecosystems, with a special interest in transition zones and interfaces, the coastal zone, wetlands, urban-rural, forest-agriculture and terrestrial/maritime landscapes.
Pre-proposals can be submitted until 14:00 (Lisbon time) on November 10, 2023.
On September 26, 2023, from 12:00 to 14:00 (Lisbon time), there will be a webinar with information for potential candidates, organized by the international secretariat of Call. Registration is compulsory and can be done here.
