This 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. Projects addressing only biodiversity issues or only health issues will not be considered within the scope of the call.

BiodivERsA – the network programming and funding research on biodiversity and ecosystem services across European countries and territories.

BiodivERsA is a network of 35 agencies and ministries from 23 European countries programming and funding pan-European research on biodiversity and ecosystem services on a competitive basis. It is an ERA-NET Co-fund, funded under the EU’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

  • Relationship between biological diversity and animal, human and/or plant health: effects and underlying mechanisms
  • Understanding and predicting the integrated effects of global change factors on biodiversity-related health issues
  • Valuing/qualifying biodiversity benefits to animal, human and plant health, and promoting health-friendly biodiversity status as well as biodiversity-based health status
  • In addition, the intention is also to fund proposals specifically focusing on biodiversity-health relations in European overseas. In this case, applicants have to address the above-mentioned theme(s), but including a European overseas dimension in term of the issues addressed, models/systems/areas covered, and stakeholders considered in their project. The objective here is that projects would involve research teams from both ORs and OCTs and mainland.

Types of Research Fund

This call will include two actions, supporting two different types of research projects:

  • Action A will support collaborative research projects, gathering different research teams generating new knowledge in particular based on the production of new primary data;
  • Action B will support research synthesis projects, gathering individuals forming a working group which 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 synthesizing and/or analyzing existing datasets (synthesizing 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.
