ALTER-Net has launched a call for Multi-Site Research proposals. Our Multi-Site Research initiative is designed to enable not only research on fundamental ecological questions but other research relevant to ALTER-Net, e.g.on socio-ecological research issues (with, e.g. interview techniques, citizen science approaches, etc.). Hence, as well as ecological studies, the programme will consider socio-ecological research and studies addressing topics including eco-political issues, ecosystem services, ecosystem functioning, etc. Given the more or less pan-European distribution of ALTER-Net consortium partners, ALTER-Net MSRs potentially allow the inclusion of the majority of bio-geographical and (socio-)economical regions in Europe.
The submission closing date is 01 August 2016, 12:00 CET.
Proposals must be led by an ALTER-Net partner but may involve other organisations.
