Deadline for pre-proposals: 7TH of December 2020.

The Water JPI and BiodivERsA initiatives joined forces to launch a call on “Conservation and restoration of degraded ecosystems and their biodiversity, including a focus on aquatic systems” covering the following three non-exclusive themes:

  • Studying the biological and biophysical processes at stake for conservation/restoration, and their interactions
  • Assessing trade-offs and synergies between targets, benefits and policies for conservation and restoration
  • Knowledge for improving the effectiveness and upscaling of conservation and restoration actions

The joint call includes a focus on freshwater aquatic systems but all environments (i.e. terrestrial, freshwater and marine) are eligible.

Deadline for pre-proposals: 7TH of December 2020.

South Africa and Switzerland confirmed their participation for a total of 31 funding organisations from 27 countries are joining this call and have reserved – together with the European Commission – a total amount of over 24 Million Euro. Consult the final Call document and Funding Organisation rules on the Water JPI and BiodivERsA websites.

On 27th October 2020 an information Webinar was organised by the call secretariat. More than 320 attendees were able to clarify their concerns and practical questions about the call. To consult the presentation and replay the webinar, links can be found here.
