Biodiversity & Ecosystem Service Sustainability (BESS)
Announcement of Opportunity for BESS workshops
The BESS (Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Sustainability) programme is a 6-year, £13m research programme addressing NERC strategic challenges and societal needs and the UK Government's strategic priorities with respect to biodiversity, ecosystems and their services. The science plan for BESS can be found on the BESS website.
This funding call is for workshops which contribute to the goals of the BESS programme, with an indicative cost of up to £8,000 per workshop or series of workshops. Workshops should provide a platform to bring together researchers and their relevant stakeholder community to explore particular issues or ideas. Bringing together people with different skills, experiences and viewpoints can generate new ideas and approaches to scientific challenges, helping to advance scientific progress on topics that that might otherwise represent significant stumbling blocks.
An application pro-forma and further details are available at the BESS website.
Informal enquiries should be directed to the BESS Director David Raffaelli.
