Making a difference
The approach of EKLIPSE and the mechanism it develops has three main elements:
- Make use of the existing networks of knowledge holders from all fields of biodiversity and ecosystem services research (and beyond) and build a Network of Networks
- Establish a process to address decision-makers' questions by synthesizing available knowledge
- Use horizon scanning and other foresight techniques to identify research needs for the EU and other funders
All of these elements use established ways of communication and interactions (meetings, expert groups, online tools, this website...) and will combine them with less common approaches (methods of knowledge synthesis, online discussion formats and Science cafes) to make our activities participatory, transparent, relevant and credible.
