ALTER-Net High Impact Actions - Call for proposals

AHIA is an initiative aimed at encouraging ALTER-Net partners to collaborate on high impact research publications

ALTER-Net is a European network of insitutes researching biodiversity, ecosystems and ecosystem services. The ALTER-Net High Impact Actions (AHIA) initiative is aimed at scientists working at or affiliated with an ALTER-Net institute in order to deliver a high impact paper on hot topics related to biodiversity, ecosystems and ecosystems services.  The purpose is to bring together existing knowledge from different partner institutes (not excluding non-members of ALTER-Net) and create a high impact paper and additional deliverables.

Calls for proposals are made once or twice a year, inviting staff at ALTER-Net partner institutes to submit proposals for small projects that are expected to result in the submission of a paper in a high impact journal. The proposals must involve partners working together. Although aimed principally at ALTER-Net members, non-members may also be included in proposals, though the lead organisation must be a member of ALTER-Net.

The latest AHIA call is now open and the closing date for submissions is 30 March 2019. For further information on AHIA, including how to submit to the current call and details of past AHIA projects, please see:
