The NetBiome-CSA partnership will travel to the European Parliament on April 6th to showcase how Outermost Regions and Overseas Countries and Territories can advance biodiversity conservation in support of sustainable development.
The International Conference “Boosting Biodiversity Research Cooperation: A NetBiome Roadmap for European (sub)Tropical Overseas" will be a unique opportunity to discuss, with experts and policy makers, the next steps for research on (sub) tropical biodiversity in support of sustainable development in Outermost Regions and in Overseas Countries and Territories.
The Conference programme will include presentations and interactions with coordinators of NetBiome-funded research projects, highlighting their achievements and lessons learned in terms of developing future research calls. Key results and achievements of the NetBiome-CSA project will also be presented, with a particular focus on the strategic policy recommendations and research priorities emerging from the work carried out with more than 150 stakeholders.
