ALTER-Net : A Long-Term Biodiversity, Ecosystem and Awareness Research Network
Title: ALTER-Net : A Long-Term Biodiversity, Ecosystem and Awareness Research Network
Title abbreviated: ALTER-Net
Creator: Dijk, Jiska van [coordinator, 2009+]; et al.
Abstract: ALTER-Net is a network of 24 partner institutes from 17 European countries. ALTER-Net integrates research capacities across Europe: assessing changes in biodiversity, analyzing the effect of those changes on ecosystem services and informing the public and policy makers about this at a European scale. Originally funded by the European Union’s Framework VI program to stimulate a collaborative approach, ALTER-Net is now operating independently. On this website you can find information about key issues of concern and ALTER-Net projects contributing to the lasting integration of Europe’s research capacity on biodiversity. ALTER-Net is building upon a number of activities developed during the first (EC-funded phase), including: (1) Identification of common research priorities and development of a common research programme, (2) Further development of the LTER-Europe network of Long-Term Ecosystem Research sites (LTER) and Long-Term Socio-Ecological Research platforms (LTSER).
