BESS Announcement of Opportunity: Call for workshops

13 February 2013

The BESS (Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services Sustainability) programme is a six-year, £13 million research programme addressing NERC strategic challenges and societal needs and the UK Government's strategic priorities with respect to biodiversity, ecosystems and their services. The science plan for BESS can be found on the BESS website - external link.

This funding call is for workshops which contribute to the goals of the BESS programme, with an indicative cost of up to £8,000 per workshop or series of workshops. Workshops should provide a platform to bring together researchers and their relevant stakeholder community to explore particular issues or ideas. Bringing together people with different skills, experiences and viewpoints can generate new ideas and approaches to scientific challenges, helping to advance scientific progress on topics that that might otherwise represent significant stumbling blocks.

An application form and further details are available on the BESS website.
