Biodiversity Partnership Joint Call 2023 with Taiwan is open!

We will help you find a partner to submit a project proposal in the Biodiversity Partnership Call 2023! The call is focused on research in the fields of nature-inspired technologies and solutions for biodiversity, improving living conditions for humanity and bringing transformative change.

Research theme of a project could be: 

  • Synergies and trade-offs of Nature-based solutions in the context of human well-being
  • Nature-based solutions mitigating anthropogenic drivers of biodiversity loss
  • The contribution of Nature-based solutions for just transformative change

Deadline for pre-proposals submission is Friday 10 November 2023, 15:00 CET.

The call will cover transnational, interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and cross-sectoral research on Nature-based Solutions in all parts of the world. All realms (i.e. terrestrial, marine, coastal, and freshwater) will be eligible. 

However, for Czech applicants to be eligible, results of the project must be applicable in the environment of the Czech Republic, it means that the applicability of foreseen project outputs and their employment in the conditions of the Czech Republic will be assessed during the national eligibility check.

The rules of the call for Czech applicants are based on the SIGMA programme. The total financial amount of TA CR support for the call for Czech applicants in international projects is EUR 680 000. The maximum financial amount of support per project is EUR 170 000. The maximum intensity of support for the Czech side of the project is 80% of the total eligible costs of the project. 

To be eligible, research consortia will have to include teams from a minimum of 3 countries financially participating in the Call, including at least 2 from EU Member States or EU Associated Countries including Taiwan. Its participation is supported by the National Council for Science and Technology.

We highly recommend you attend an information webinar for potential applicants. It will be organised on 26 September 2023, from 13:00 to 15:00 CEST.
