NETworking tropical and subtropical BIodiversity research in OuterMost regions and territories of Europe in support of sustainable development
Aim of the project
Net-Biome focuses on the involvement of society in setting priorities identified by managers and scientists of regional programs. Promoted interaction with European and international organizations in the field of biodiversity, such as networks of excellence FP6 (ALTERNET, EUR-OCEANS and MARBEF), other relevant ERA-NETs (biodiverse, Marinera and Skep) and non-governmental organizations to identify gaps in the basic sciences and technology necessary to provide a basis for sound policies.
Under this project was launched a joint call for transnational and trans-regional research entitled “Towards Biodiversity Management in support of Sustainable Development in Tropical and Subtropical US”. Five projects were fund, the FRCT funded regional teams of three of these projects, SAFEPGR, SEAPROLIF and MOVECLIM.
