Call for Proposals Environment 2011 FP7-ENV-2011 Closed!

Objectives

To promote sustainable management of the natural and human environment and its resources by advancing our knowledge on the interactions between the biosphere, ecosystems and human activities, and developing new technologies, tools and services, in order to address in an integrated way global environmental issues. Emphasis will be put on prediction of climate, ecological, earth and ocean systems changes, on tools and on technologies for monitoring, prevention and mitigation of environmental pressures and risks including on health and for the sustainability of the natural and man-made environment.

  • To provide integrated solutions for action on adaptation to and mitigation of climate change
  • To support eco-innovation for eco-efficiency in society
  • To provide a systemic approach for governance in a changing environment.

In adition to our useful documents section, further information about Call FP7-ENV-2011, as well as relevant documents can be found at the FP7 Cordis website.
