This call aims to support transnational research projects (3-years duration) addressing one or more of the three (non-exclusive) themes below:

  1. Knowledge for identifying priority conservation areas, establishing effective and resilient ecological networks, enhancing species-based protection and preserving genetic diversity;
  2. Multiple benefits and costs of biodiversity and ecosystem protection: synergies and trade-offs;
  3. Effective management and equitable governance to deliver bold conservation outcome.

Projects combining aspects from several themes are encouraged. This call is focused on the protection of biodiversity in the wild. This does not, for example, include efforts for restoration of habitats and species, or ex-situ conservation.

The call covers all environments, i.e. terrestrial, freshwater and marine. It also covers research on biodiversity conservation in the Outermost Regions (ORs) and Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) of the EU.

Call Schedule

A two-step process will apply, with a mandatory submission of pre-proposals at the first step and submission of full proposals at the second step, via an Electronic Proposal Submission System (EPSS).

The link to the EPSS will be available soon on the BiodivERsA website.

  • Deadline for pre-proposals submission (mandatory): Tuesday 30 November 2021, 15:00 CET (local time in Brussels);
  • Deadline for full-proposals submission: Thursday 14 April 2022, 15:00 CEST (local time in Brussels).

Save the Dates

  • An information webinar for all potential applicants will be organised on October 12, from 11:00 to 12:30 CEST (local time in Brussels) to answer all your questions about this call;
  • The launch of this call also marks the official start of Biodiversa+ (formal launch event is planned 17-18 November 2021)Save the date & register for virtual participation.

More Information

Mathematical Logic Webinar, por Guilherme Velez (Ciências ULisboa).

At the end of this course, participants will be able to predict the three-dimensional structure of nucleic acid and proteins from their sequence and use the acquired knowledge to improve or create new methodologies in molecular biology research and diagnostics.

Uma conversa que cruza ciências e humanidades, e se propõe reimaginar uma nova relação com a matéria - a matéria de que somos feitos e que nos envolve.

Seminário de Pós-graduação (Doutoramento em Biologia - Especialidade de Biologia Evolutiva), por Marta Maria Alves Antunes.

This talk will cover new methodologies of scientific visualization in high-performance computing systems specially designed for large scale scientific visualization that provide greater level of accuracy and detail.

This is the 11th edition of the Combinatorics Days, to be held online, Zoom platform, on the 21st and the 22nd of January.

Como é de conhecimento geral, assistimos atualmente a um rápido desenvolvimento nas formas de acesso à informação e publicação científica. O objetivo da jornada é fazer o ponto da situação na área da Matemática e discutir as perspetivas futuras.

The course SoilEco aims at introducing attendants to an updated state of the art of diversity of the soil biota and the functional roles played by soil organisms in key ecological processes.

Understanding plant water relations at several scales under climate change is the theme of the XV Portuguese-Spanish Water relations Symposium: “Water relations under climate change: from genes to ecosystem”.

In this course, we promote a multidisciplinary approach presenting the most recent findings on the topic and challenging the traditional way of considering symbiotic associations as exceptions and not as the rule.

The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects.

Neste encontro, vamos descobrir as potencialidades da utilização do Jamboard - um quadro branco digital gratuito da Google - em trabalhos colaborativos.

Nesta formação, aprenderemos a criar apresentações dentro do Mentimeter, a criar diferentes tipos de slides e a selecionar as configurações mais adequadas aos objetivos pedagógicos.

Nesta formação, iremos abordar as diferentes etapas do processo de planificação de unidades curriculares e refletir conjuntamente em boas práticas sustentadas pela investigação.

This course aims to explore ways of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, such as policy makers, industry, general public (including students and teachers), through their engagement and participation in citizen science activities.

O evento pretende juntar técnicos, investigadores, estudantes, produtores, industriais e demais agentes da fileira, contribuindo para a atualização de dados sobre o setor e a partilha de conhecimentos sobre as potencialidades da flora portuguesa, para além, das condições edafoclimáticas nacionais que potenciam produtos de elevada qualidade.

This course introduces the field of island biogeography, a discipline that has long influenced other research areas such as macroecology, community ecology, evolution and conservation biology.

Scientists, as the main actors in the production of scientific knowledge, have the responsibility of having an active voice in communicating this knowledge – and that can be achieved for example by a conscious use of the communication tools at their disposal and a better articulation with journalists, among other means.

This course aims at providing students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

This course aims at providing students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. It also includes an introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity.

The course provides essential skills and knowledge that enable the participants to develop climate change adaptation strategies.

The objective of this course is to provide participants with basic knowledge on a) the fundamental aspects of experimental design and b) workflows, platforms and tools to increase reproducibility at all scientific levels.

This is a mostly practical course offering an overview on different community ecology and macroecological methods and software. These will include all steps of a research project, from the optimal sampling of communities to process inference from large-scale patterns of taxon, phylogenetic and functional diversity.
