The E-BIND project is a DG Environment-supporting initiative which aims at ensuring the support of scientific bodies and networks in providing knowledge and data to ensure a better and more effective implementation of the Birds and Habitats Directives. This project includes a consultation process which involves reaching out to scientific organisations and networks holding information and data needed for a better implementation of the EU Nature Directives.
Participation in surveys
The European Ocean Observing System (EOOS) is seeking participation in a 1-minute survey to relating to its recently launched call to action, and to find out if participants can help to evolve the initiative.
The EOOS call to action focuses on the following 3 key actions:
CIIMAR, as part of the GENIALG project (GENetic diversity exploitation for Innovative Macro-ALGal biorefinery) is assessing the socio-environmental benefits of seaweed farming in part through an open survey. Applicable to anyone, this survey will help the researchers and industry partners better understand the perceptions of seaweed harvesting industries as they relate to everyday life.
The Newly launched project CatRIS (Catalogue of Research Infrastructure Services) is inviting participants for its survey which is tailored to a wide spectrum of RI users and stakeholders.
CatRIs will build an online catalogue of European research infrastructure services, with particular emphasis on physical infrastructures. This novel information gateway will help improve the visibility of services, enhance RI usage and impact, and foster European and international collaborations.
The purpose is to evaluate the performance and functioning of the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). The findings of the evaluation will be used to guide activities undertaken in support of marine knowledge in the remaining years 2019-2020 of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and to feed into the preparatory process for a possible follow-up post 2020.
MARBEC laboratory, in collaboration with CNRS and IRD, are coordinating a (picture-based) scientific survey on the relationship between visual perception of coral reef fish and biodiversity. Please help the survey coordinators to help the target audience (over 10,000 participants) by taking the survey and spreading the word around you.
The EU project Green Bubbles is seeking scientific divers to complete a questionnaire for research purposes. The survey will help to outline the profile of scientific divers and the main methodologies they apply. Results of this survey will be made publicly available to improve and update the training of scientific divers, to enhance international collaborations and increase safety at work.
The Young Scientists Working Group (YSWG) has created a survey to understand the professional context, motivations and concerns of early career researchers within the marine sciences. The overall aim of the YSWG is to increase knowledge about current issues concerning early career scientists' working environment, financial situation and future perspectives in science.
The European Marine Biological Research Infrastructure Cluster (EMBRIC) is designed to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and innovation from marine bioresources. EMBRIC aims to promote new innovations derived from marine organisms in fields such as drug discovery, novel foods and food ingredients, aquaculture selective breeding, bioremediation, cosmetics and bioenergy.
This survey aims to collect up-to-date information regarding Research Vessels and their use in Europe.
