EKLIPSE is an EU-funded project that will facilitate the process of developing a self-sustainable EU support mechanism, building on the Network of Networks on biodiversity and ecosystem services that has been developing in Europe thanks to networks, projects, learned societies, civil society organisations and interest groups. We understand the idea of network quite broadly and thus reach out to projects, networks and institutions that might have a main focus on other sectors (e.g., health, agriculture, social innovation, planning and many more), but have links to the area of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
