The National Science Centre and BiodivERsA consortium invites researchers to the call for international research projects.

The following themes are covered (equal in relevance):

  1. Understanding and managing the biodiversity dynamics of soils and sediments to improve ecosystem functioning and delivery of ecosystem services.
  2. Understanding and managing biodiversity dynamics in land-, river- and sea-scapes (habitat connectivity, green and blue infrastructures, and naturing cities) to improve ecosystem functioning and delivery of ecosystem services.

The indicative global budget for this call is ca. 30 million euro.

The deadline for submitting pre-proposals is 20th of July 2015.

Scientific teams will be invited to form transnational research consortia with teams from minimum 3 countries participating in the call, except for proposals including research groups from outermost regions and overseas countries and territories for which it suffices if the research groups come from two different countries and the proposal concerns three different funding organisations.

24 national/regional funding organisations from 15 countries are joining this call:

Belgium, Bulgaria, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey

Polish applicants should also submit a short application via OSF system (UNISONO application) by the 27th of July 2015. Budget of the Polish part of the research project in the OSF system should be given in PLN. The Euro exchange rate should be calculated according to the NCN Council’s Resolutions no 7/2013 and 22/2014 (1 EUR= 4,2277 PLN).
