Tipping Points Funding Call

Funding Call now closed

The last funding call under the Valuing Nature Programme was on "Understanding ecosystem stocks and tipping points".

The funding will support interdisciplinary research projects that, through developing a better understanding of the complexities of the UK natural environment in valuation analyses, will seek to improve our understanding of:

i. the links between ecosystem stocks, ecosystem service flows and benefits that are delivered as a result in the context of defining critical levels of ecosystem stocks that avoid abrupt and damaging change in the delivery of benefits (tipping points).

ii. how the values of ecosystem services and benefits change as tipping points are reached and exceeded

Call closed: 5 May 2016 16:00 BST

Up to £1.1M (80% FEC) is available from NERC for three proposals of up to 30 months duration, and up to £370K (80% FEC).
