The BiodivERsA 2018-2019 transnational call for research proposals on biodiversity and its influence on animal, human and plant health is now open. This call is open to the Irish Research Community.
The call aims at supporting transnational research projects jointly addressing issues at the nexus of biodiversity and animal, human and/or plant health across the different relevant spatial, and temporal scales in an effort to support evidence-based decision-making.
This call includes two actions, supporting two different types of research projects:
- Action A will support collaborative research projects, gathering different research teams and generating new primary data;
- Action B will support research synthesis projects, gathering individuals forming a working group who perform research and answer research questions using existing data sets. These research projects will not collect or produce new primary data, the core activity of these projects being synthesising and/or analysing existing data (synthesising concepts and ideas is also eligible). Note that these projects differ from systematic reviews or knowledge synthesis which are based on a synthesis of publications and reports.
Deadline for submission of pre-proposals is 16th November 2018, 16:00 CET. Full details including information on upcoming webinars are available on the BiodivERsA website.
