Belmont Forum and BiodivERsA are pleased to announce the 2017-2018 international call for research proposals on Scenarios of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services
The Call will address the two following major (non-exclusive) priorities:
- 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 servicesin biodiversity scenarios
The call aims at supporting proposals that explicitly address a scenario dimension, taking into account the following definition of scenarios: “Scenarios of biodiversity and ecosystem services are the outputs of the combination of scenarios of indirect drivers and direct drivers — such as land use change, invasive alien species, overexploitation, climate change or pollution — and models of impacts of these drivers on biodiversity and ecosystem services.”
Deadline for pre-registration (mandatory): Friday December 1, 2017, 17:00 CET (local time in Brussels)
Deadline for submission of full-proposals: Friday March 9, 2018, 17:00 CET (local time in Brussels)
For more information on the call, please consult the complete announcement of opportunity (including research priorities, pre-registration and submission forms, and rules and procedures including assessment criteria) on the Belmont Forum and BiodivERsA websites.
