ENABLING TRANSFORMATIVE CHANGE

Knowledge

Updated on: 2022-04-19


Deadline: 2022

Summary: Horizon Europe, amongst others, aims in contributing in the effort in halting biodiversity decline and restoring ecosystems by focusing on: (i) understanding & addressing biodiversity decline, (ii) assessing, valuing and restoring ecosystems and natural capital, (iii) nature-based solutions, (iv) transformative change, (v) connecting research for better policies, (vi) biodiversity and human health. Under Horizon Europe, the Commission is working to establish a long-term strategic research agenda for biodiversity and a science policy mechanism for research-based options for ratcheting up the implementation of biodiversity commitments (‘Science Service’). The Work Programme of Horizon Europe 2021-22, Cluster 6 Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment, Destination “Biodiversity”, includes 34 topics specifically targeting biodiversity protection and restoration. The Green Deal Missions on Oceans, Climate Adaptation, Soil and Cities that have been established will also significantly contribute to filling knowledge gaps and finding solutions to improve the health of ecosystems.
