Understanding and valuing coastal and marine biodiversity and exosystems services

Project leader: Prof. Prof. h. c. Dr Ursula Siebert
Scientific work: Dr. Joseph Schnitzler
Project term: middle of 2021 until February 2022
Sponsorship: Niedersächsisches Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kultur

Project description

The aim of the project is to build up and consolidate our project consortium, to prepare the project application and to ensure a joint application in due time in this EU funding program. The composition of a convincing project consortium with the involvement of many different European countries is quite important. We aim to coordinate for the project as well as to cover important research areas. The deliverables also include contributing to a better overall societal and public understanding of the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning through education and training (school and marine science, art and citizen science platforms). Therefore, we would like to specifically work with a professional media partner to create a good outreach concept. The proposed project should enable us to ensure the preparation of the proposal with the project partners, to write the proposal with experienced scientists in the field of biodiversity, ecology and health and to submit it on time with the support of an external professional EU project proposal office
