The EU Biodiversity Strategy beyond 2020
What should the post 2020 European biodiversity strategy look like? How will research contribute to this strategy and help to define its goals?
The 2019 biennial conference hosted by ALTER-Net and EKLIPSE will explore these very questions. With the central theme of the post 2020 European biodiversity targets and the potential contributions of scientific research, we will take a proactive role in the consideration and shaping of this critical strategy.
|Period||[17/06/2019 - 19/06/2019]|
|Event location||Augustinian Monastry Ghent, Belgium|
|Host||Alter-net and Eklipse with the European Commission|
|See the agenda||http://www.alter-net.info/events/alter-net-conf-2019|
The conference will cover four specific sub-themes:
- Envisaging plausible futures
- Probable changes in nature
- New relationships
- Policy responses
Researchers, decision-makers and practitioners from all disciplines and fields are invited to contribute to this conference. Abstracts for session subjects, presentations and posters related to research insights and needs for biodiversity and ecosystem services (within the framework of the EU Biodiversity Strategy beyond 2020) are now being accepted.
