ESPA 2016 town meeting
The ESPA research programme is planning to announce a call for research synthesis projects in early 2016. The call will fund a set of projects that build upon the scientific advances and evidence generated by ESPA grants. They will use ESPA research, knowledge and frameworks as a starting point but researchers should also extend their analysis more widely to consider all other relevant research evidence "looked at through the lens" of ESPA's approach to consider the links between a range of ecosystem services and multiple dimensions of poverty.
On behalf of the ESPA funders, NERC are inviting interested parties to apply to attend a town meeting on 28 January 2016 in central London.
The town meeting will provide an opportunity for the ESPA community to hear about the call, to engage and feed into refining its focus, and to develop contacts and ideas for possible projects. Attendance at the meeting is not a prerequisite to submitting a proposal to the call.
Further details are available here. Please note that the deadline for registration has been extended and now closes on Wednesday 11th December 2015.
