Alongside its partners from the Belmont Forum, ANR launches a call for proposal on biodiversity scenarios on May 2nd. The objective is to stimulate the formation of international networks of scientists and the advancement of the inter- and trans-disciplinary methodologies of scenario-building needed to enhance usefulness of biodiversity scenarios in decision-making.
Proposals for one to two-year networking projects can be submitted on the Belmont Forum’s submission portal until July 2, 2014.
The Belmont Forum plans opening a second call in 2017, on the same topic, for international collaborative research projects, possibly in partnership with other funding bodies such as the European network BiodivERsA.
Funding should support researchers to cooperate in consortia consisting of partners from at least three of the participating countries.
The consortium involving French partner must propose a new research project including a minimum of 2 partners from a minimum of 2 other countries participating to the call which can receive new funding corresponding to new manpower, experimental, equipment or operating costs.
The appelsprojetsrecherche.fr portal centralises all information on calls for proposals and calls for applications from ADEME, ANR, Inserm including ANRS, Anses and INCa. It provides a simplified access to upcoming and ongoing calls, giving a greater visibility to funding opportunities. Following their closing date, the calls remain published for a few months.
