BiodivERsA and the Water JPI launched a joint call on "Conservation and restoration of degraded ecosystems and their biodiversity". 31 funding organisations from 27 countries are planning to join this call and have reserved – together with the EU Commission – a total amount of over 20 million Euro. This call will cover the following three non-exclusive themes:

  • Studying the biological and biophysical processes at stake for conservation/restoration, and their interactions
  • Assessing trade-offs and synergies between targets, benefits and policies for conservation and restoration
  • Knowledge for improving the effectiveness and upscaling of conservation and restoration actions

This joint call includes a focus on freshwater aquatic systems but ALL ENVIRONMENTS (I.E. TERRESTRIAL, FRESHWATER AND MARINE) ARE ELIGIBLE. Each participant in a funded project will be funded by his or her national/ regional organisation(s) participating in the call. For German applicants, the rules of DFG or BMBF/ DLR-PT apply respectively. Please note that it is mandatory to follow their requirements. To make sure that all requirements are met and to receive latest information, please contact your respective funding organisation contact point. A two-step process will apply, with a mandatory submission of pre-proposals at the first step. The closing date for pre-proposals (step 1) will expire on 7 December 2020. An information webinar will be organised on the 27 October 2020 to answer all your questions about this call. A registration is necessary.

The ERA-NET Bioenergy launched a call for proposals on "Development and improvement of biomass conversion technologies for the provisioning of heat for industrial processes". Bioenergy has a key role to play in achieving EU climate targets and already accounts for more than two thirds of total renewable energy in the EU. Taking into account, that it is not only important to maintain and increase the amount of renewable resources that can be harvested on a sustainable basis, but also to use the available biomass as efficiently as possible. Public funding is available for this joint call from funding bodies in Austria, Germany, Poland and Switzerland. The German national funding will be legally and financially based on parts of BMEL’s programme "Förderprogramm Nachwachsende Rohstoffe FPNR" with possible funding via this call in two core areas:

  • 1. Bestimmung und Entwicklung von Technologien und Systemen zur Bioenergiegewinnung und -nutzung mit dem Ziel der weiteren Reduzierung von Treibhausgas- und Schadstoffemissionen in den Haupteinsatzgebieten Strom, Wärme und Kraftstoffe
  • 2. Flexible und effiziente Bioenergieanlagen zur Erzeugung von erneuerbaren Energieträgern (Strom, Wärme und Mobilität) in Verbindung mit Systemintegration und Sektorkopplung

Projects addressing fundamental research and/ or feasibility studies are not eligible (Technology Readiness Level (TRL) <4). There is no obligation regarding the number of companies to be involved from Germany, but company participation is recommended in order to ensure exploitation of results. Please note that there are several other national funding requirements. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the FNR. On 11 November 2020 a networking webinar will be organized to give researchers the chance to interlink with each other and enlarge consortia. There will be a two-stage submission procedure for joint applications: pre-proposals and full proposals. Consortia who pass the first evaluation stage are invited to submit their full proposals. The pre-proposal submission deadline is going to expire on 26 January 2021. In addition, German applicants have to send an email to FNR with (A) ca. 100 words information on the focus of the total project and (B) ca. 200 words on the contributions of the German partners to the project until 11 January 2021. You will receive information if the idea is basically eligible or not and have a chance to adjust the project idea. Until 26 January 2021, 13:00 CET, applicants who are interested in funding via FNR are obliged to submit the German additional information "Zusatzformular" to FNR in parallel to submitting the pre-proposal. In case of late or failed submission, the respective project will be deemed ineligible in order to ensure the fairness towards other applicants.

COST ist eine durch Horizon Europe (2021-2027) geförderte zwischenstaatliche Initiative zur europäischen Vernetzung, die allen wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen offen steht. COST Actions finanzieren u.a. die Organisation von Veranstaltungen, Training Schools, Publikationen und Short Scientific Exchanges. COST fördert nicht die Forschungsmaßnahmen selbst.

Die geförderten Netzwerke haben eine Laufzeit von vier Jahren. Das Besondere bereits bewilligter COST Actions liegt in der laufenden Aufnahme neuer Mitglieder. Sie können die COST-Datenbank der bereits bewilligten COST Actions nach für Sie relevanten Stichworten durchsuchen.

COST Actions bieten verschiedene Vorteile für Forschende wie z.B.:

  • Sie erleichtern Kontakte zu europäischen Partnern, woraus sich gemeinsame Vorhaben im Bereich Forschung und Innovation entwickeln können wie u.a. Publikationen oder Projektanträge.
  • Sie bieten vielfältige Möglichkeiten der Karriereentwicklung, was insbesondere für junge Wissenschaftler*innen nützlich sein kann.

Das Antragsverfahren für neue COST Actions ist themenoffen (Bottom-up-Prinzip) und einstufig. Der nächste Stichtag ist der 29. Oktober 2021.

The ForestValue Research Programme announced a call for joint European research projects. The call will support basic and applied research and is focussed on solutions how forests and forest-based activities could best contribute to reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It will address the whole forest-based value chain and will produce knowledge to support the best possible use of forests and forest resources as well as to provide multiple benefits for society and the economy. The precise topics are to be defined by the participating funders; however, the topics will be broad and crosscutting and the call will aim to encourage and make best use of cross-sectoral, coherent and integrated perspective (nexus approach). The call for proposals is expected to open in January 2021. Projects are supposed to start late 2021/early 2022. Please note that the information given in the pre-announcement is provisional and subject to change in the official call announcement being published with the call opening.
