New video available: hear about the thinking behind the current funding call on Understanding Ecosystem Stocks and Tipping Points from Rosie Hails, lead of the Valuing Nature Programme Coordination Team.
The video includes:
- the background to the call
- the focus of the call and what we mean by Tipping Points
- the expectations for interdisciplinary working
You can see the video on our Tipping Point Call page here.
This funding opportunity has the potential to link to the Valuing Nature Research Goal on Human Health and Wellbeing.

A number of weeks ago I attended a meeting with mainly social scientists and economists, presenting on my project about valuing coastal ecosystems and how they’re affected bydifferent stressors. This event was the “Valuing Nature Placements” start-up meeting in London, and when I began my presentation I described myself as a field ecologist with very little knowledge of environmental economics.
From 2 March, the Valuing Nature Programme is running a three-day Business Impact School to provide early career researchers with an opportunity to gain insight into producing research with business impact. The Natural Environment Research Council is funding this School to help develop a Valuing Nature research community with a broader understanding of how to translate research into private sector decision making and innovation.
Outdoor green and blue spaces
The National Institute for Health Research's (NIHR) Public Health Research Programme wishes to commission research on the effectiveness* of interventions to promote health and wellbeing, and reduce inequalities, in outdoor “green” and “blue” spaces.
The National Environment Research Council (NERC), the Medical Research Council and the Scottish Government Chief Scientist Office are investing up to £600,000 in projects to identify and fill knowledge gaps around the potential of environmental data to improve health outcomes in the UK.
A brokerage event in Edinburgh to identify projects for this call is planned for April 2016. Prospective participants will be invited to apply to attend this event. Participants will then be invited to submit full proposals for studies following the event.
