European Long-Term Ecosystem and Socio-Ecological Research Infrastructure — eLTER
Európska infraštruktúra pre dlhodobý ekosystémový a socioekologický výskum - eLTER
Program: Horizon 2020
Project leader: RNDr. Halada Ľuboš CSc.
Annotation:The overall aim of the eLTER project is to advance the European network of Long-Term Ecosystem Research sites and socio-ecological research platforms to provide highest quality services for multiple use of a distributed research infrastructure. eLTER ́s major objectives and methods are to: (1) identify user needs for the research infrastructure in relation to major societal challenges through consultations with scientific, policy and business stakeholders and horizon scanning; (2) streamline the design of a cost-efficient pan-European network, able to address multiple ecosystem research issues, in collaboration with related global and European research infrastructures, e.g. LifeWatch; (3) develop the organisational framework for data integration and enable virtual access to the LTER data by enabling data publishing through distributed Data Nodes and by providing access to data on key research challenges through a Data Integration Platform; (4) foster the societal relevance, usability and multiple use of information, data and services through new partnerships with the providers of remotely sensed data, analytical services and scenario testing models, and via the adoption of new measurement technologies. The LTER-Europe network and the European Critical Zone community will collaborate to achieve these goals. 162 sites in 22 countries will provide data on long-term trends in environmental change, some reaching back 100 years. Test cases using these data will address a range of environmental and social issues to push innovation in network level services and steer conceptual developments. The envisaged “LTER Infrastructure” will enable European-scale investigation of major ecosystems and socio-ecological systems, and support knowledge-based decision making at multiple levels.

European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity
Európske tematické centrum pre biologickú diverzitu
Program: Bilateral - other
Project leader: RNDr. Halada Ľuboš CSc.
Annotation:The European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity (ETC/BD) is established to support the work of EEA in the field of biodiversity for the period 2014-18 and the implementation of the EU Action Plan on Biodiversity and related global strategies. Key priority areas included in the work plans established between the EEA and the European Commission include: • Support implementation of existing EU legislation relating to nature (Habitats and Birds Directives), including links to other key EU legislation concerning the sea and water, rationalization of the data collection, reporting and sharing of experience and knowledge; • Support for assessment and reporting in connection with the global- and the EU biodiversity strategies, while promoting the implementation of data and information aspects, in particular the mapping and assessment of the health of ecosystems and their services in Europe; • Work on specific tasks relating to the EU's biodiversity strategy in sectors that are not covered by other ETCs. These include agriculture and forestry. The cooperation with the JRC, DG AGRI, and other pan-European and global partners in these issues is needed.

Program: Horizon 2020
Project leader: Doc. RNDr. Izakovičová Zita PhD.
Annotation:The project is aimed at the evaluation of current state of research in the topic land management and definition of the needs for the next period. The main sub-objectives of the project are: Identify social challenges related to land, especially land use, the management of land and soil protection, land use and utilisation of landscape resources, Evaluate approaches to integrated land management, to evaluate the current strengths and weaknesses, define proposals to improve the situation, Identify the need for research in the area land use and land management, Identifies the main groups of "stakeholders" and create a network of all groups "stakeholders" in the field, Ensure the transfer of knowledge in practice and contribute to improving policy EU and research in this area.

Monitoring of LIFE projects (action grants and operating grants), communication about the LIFE programme and other linked activities- NEEMO EEIG
Monitorovanie LIFE projektov, komunikácia o LIFE programe a o iných aktivitách spojených s LIFE programom - NEEMO EEIG
Program: Multilateral - other
Project leader: Ing. Oszlányi Július CSc.
Annotation:The project is focused mainly on monitoring of quality and professional and financial correctness of implementation of the EU co-funded projects of the LIFE programme in strands Environment and Climate Action. These projects support the development of Natura 2000 network through concrete conservation actions or deal with various environmental issues. They usually last from three to five years. NEEMO EEIG consortium comprises 9 companies and institutes spread across the Europe, enabling the consortium to make the best use of its resources, and to provide expertise combined with local knowledge and the necessary language skills. Monitoring experts regularly check the implementation of projects in the field or beneficiary premises and submit evaluation reports to the European Commission, DG Environment.

Support for the implementation of the ENI-SEIS II East 2017-2018 Regional and National Work Plan in assisting reporting to Emerald Network
Podpora pre implementáciu regionálneho a národného plánu ENI-SEIS II East 2017-2018 v podpore podávania správ pre sieť Emerald
Program: Other
Project leader: RNDr. Halada Ľuboš CSc.
Annotation:The project is aimed to provide scientific and technical support to the six countries of Eastern Europe (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) to strengthen their environmental monitoring and information management on the basis of the SEIS principles. As far as biodiversity is concerned, this implies support for the implementation of the Emerald Network under the Berne Convention. The project includes following activities: - Regional workshops on reporting requirements. Two workshops are expected with focus to reporting requirements based on international standards and developing of distributional maps for species and habitats; - Biogeographical seminars on sufficiency assessment of proposed and candidate Emerald sites. Two seminars are foreseen: 1) Seminar to assess sufficiency of the proposed and candidate sites to protect species (except birds) and habitats in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia; 2) Seminar to assess sufficiency of the proposed and candidate Emerald sites to protect bird species in Belarus, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine; - Helpdesk support to the ENI East countries in using the Standard Data Form Tool for reporting the data to the EEA CDR; - Stremalining between Bern Convention (Emerald) and the EU Nature Directives in reporting - Harmonisation of methodologies for production of regionally comparable indicator on protected areas – implementing the indicator on protected areas.
