ALTER-Net launches 2020 AHIA call for proposals

The ALTER-Net High Impact Action (AHIA) initiative was introduced to support high-impact projects that foster collaboration between ALTER-Net partner institutes on hot topics.

Past AHIA projects have yielded publications in major journals, produced tangible policy and societal impact, and established long-term international research partnerships.

The 2020 AHIA Call for Proposals is now open.

ALTER-Net is committed to supporting the work of researchers who are addressing the most pressing issues facing science and society. This year, we will be accepting proposals on the following subjects:

  • Sustainable futures for European landscapes
  • The dependence of human society on biodiversity and ecosystem services
  • Climate mitigation in European urban areas: the role of ecosystem services


Proposals on other excellent topics relevant to biodiversity and ecosystems will also be considered.

Opening of call: 12 December 2019
Deadline for submitting proposals: 15 March 2020
