AGINFRA+ addresses the challenge of supporting user-driven design and prototyping of innovative e-infrastructure services and applications. It particularly tries to meet the needs of the scientific and technological communities that work on the multi-disciplinary and multi-domain problems related to agriculture and food. It will use, adapt and evolve existing open e-infrastructure resources and se ...

Nanomaterial FAte and Speciation in the Environment (NanoFASE)

Start date: Sep 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2019,

Concept: NanoFASE will deliver an integrated Exposure Assessment Framework, including methods, parameter values, model and guidance that will allow Industry to assess the full diversity of industrial nano-enabled products to a standard acceptable in regulatory registrations. Methods to assess how use phases, waste streams and environmental compartments (air, soil, water biota) act as “reactors” in ...

IMPRESSIONS will provide empirically-grounded, transformative science that quantifies and explains the consequences of high-end climate scenarios for both decision-makers and society. IMPRESSIONS will develop and apply a novel participatory methodology that explicitly deals with uncertainties and strong non-linear changes focussing on high-end climate change, but also including intermediate warmin ...

Mapping and assessment of ecosystems and their services (ES) are core to the EU Biodiversity (BD) Strategy. They are essential if we are to make informed decisions. Action 5 sets the requirement for an EU-wide knowledge base designed to be: a primary data source for developing Europe’s green infrastructure; resource to identify areas for ecosystem restoration; and, a baseline against which the goa ...

EU BON: Building the European Biodiversity Observation Network (EU BON)

Start date: Dec 1, 2012, End date: May 31, 2017,

Sustainable governance of our biological resources requires reliable scientific knowledge that meets the needs of society. Current biodiversity observation systems and environmental datasets are unbalanced in coverage and not integrated, limiting integrative analyses and implementation of environmental policies.EU BON presents an innovative approach towards integration of biodiversity information ...

In order to protect biodiversity, policy makers increasingly require demonstration of its value. BESAFE will usecase studies to investigate how much importance people attribute to alternative arguments for the protectionof biodiversity and in particular how this relates to ecosystem services. It will focus on the arguments used at different governance levels and in different ecological, socio-econ ...

Status and Trends of European Pollinators (STEP)

Start date: Feb 1, 2010, End date: Jan 31, 2015,

Pollinators form a key component of European biodiversity, and provide vital ecosystem services to crops and wild plants. There is growing evidence of declines in both wild and domesticated pollinators, and parallel declines in plants relying upon them. STEP will document the nature and extent of these declines, examine functional traits associated with particular risk, develop a Red List of some ...

Biodiversity core data and information constitutes an important source of knowledge for many disciplines. In order to facilitate access to this knowledge, technical and semantic interoperability barriers need to be addressed.The objectives of Pro-iBiosphere are, to: a) Coordinate towards and prepare the foundations for a long-term viable, evolving knowledge management, aggregation and integration ...

Our capacity to effectively sustain biodiversity across spatial and temporal scales is an essential component of European environmental sustainability. Anthropogenic and environmental pressures on biodiversity act differently at different scales. Consequently, effective conservation responses to these threats must explicitly consider the scale at which effects occur, and therefore it is crucial th ...

Virtual Biodiversity Research and Access Network for Taxonomy (ViBRANT)

Start date: Dec 1, 2010, End date: Nov 30, 2013,

Biodiversity science brings information science and technologies to bear on the data and information generated by the study of organisms, their genes, and their interactions. ViBRANT will help focus the collective output of biodiversity science, making it more transparent, accountable, and accessible. Mobilising these data will address global environmental challenges, contribute to sustainable dev ...

Models for Adaptive Forest Management (MOTIVE)

Start date: May 1, 2009, End date: Apr 30, 2013,

"The project MOdels for AdapTIVE forest Management (MOTIVE) will evaluate the consequences of the intensified competition for forest resources given climate and land use change. The project focuses on a wide range of European forest types under different intensities of forest management. In particular, MOTIVE examines impacts with respect to the disturbance regimes determining forest dynamics. MOT ...
