Nature-Based Solutions: a new call

Supporting research on biodiversity to gain a better understanding of the tipping points and trade-offs and underlying mechanisms affecting Nature-Based Solutions, and their successful implementation. This is the call promoted by BiodivERsA, the Biodiversity Partnership co-funded by Horizon Europe that supports biodiversity research with impact for policy and society.  The call is for transnational, interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral research projects in all parts of the world.

Here are the main topics:

  • THEME 1 – Synergies and trade-offs of Nature-Based Solutions in the context of human well-being;
  • THEME 2 – Nature-Based Solutions mitigating anthropogenic drivers of biodiversity loss;
  • THEME 3 – The contribution of Nature-Based Solutions for just transformative change.

Proposals from all realms (terrestrial, marine, coastal, and freshwater) are eligible.

Research teams will be invited to form transnational research consortia with eligible research partners from minimum three different countries participating in the call and requesting support from at least three different Funding Organisations (including minimum two different EU Member States or EU Associated Countries).

The call will take place in two stages: a mandatory submission of pre-proposals in the first step (deadline10 November 2023 at 3 pm CET) and the and submission of full proposals  (deadline 9 April 2024 at 3 pm CEST) in the second step
