BiodiversityKnowledge [KNEU]

Runtime: 2010 - 2014
Funding: EU-FP7
external link:http://www.biodiversityknowledge.eu/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=14&Itemid=101

Summary

The project is targeted on the development of a recommended design for a scientific biodiversity Network of Knowledge (NoK) to inform policy-makers, the policy-making process and other societal actors. It will develop links to relevant clients to support the science-society interface in Europe and beyond.

Description

 
The approach integrates:
  • mapping the biodiversity knowledge landscape in Europe
  • developing a prototype of NoK by involving a wide number of institutions & networks in biodiversity research and policy
  • carrying out case studies in relevant policy fields (agriculture, biodiversity conservation, marine issues) in order to test and trial the Nok –prototype´s functioning and effectiveness
  • evaluation of the experiences by an additional expert group in order to provide input for developing a recommended design for a potential future Network of Knowledge
