ALTER-Net adopts the Eklipse science-policy interface mechanism
Published in 22/6/2020
As part of its commitment to the European science-policy interface, ALTER-Net, the international network that has CESAM (Centre for Environmental and Marine Studies) as a member, is adopting the Eklipse science-policy interface mechanism. Eklipse mechanism aims to fill the gap at the European Science Policy Interface (SPI) by establishing a self-sustainable European support mechanism for evidence-informed policy on biodiversity and ecosystem services. Building on the high impact outputs already produced by Eklipse in the pilot phase in response to policy-maker requests (e.g. environmental ministries, EU Commission, IUCN, etc.), this mechanism will advance the Eklipse strategy of promoting robust and transparent SPI approaches, bringing together the best expertise from across the EU, and using tailored, adapted and state-of-the-art methods for knowledge synthesis.
