Advancing the European Long-Term Ecosystem, critical zone and socio-ecological Research Infrastructure towards ESFRI
Advance eLTER
Program: Multilateral - other
Project leader: RNDr. Halada Ľuboš CSc.
Annotation:Advance_eLTER marks a crucial step in building the distributed European Research Infrastructure of Long-Term Ecosystem Research sites and socio-ecological research platforms (eLTER RI) to provide highest quality data and services complementary to the European and global environmental RIs. The project will conduct important conceptual work and preparatory steps towards enabling European-scale investigation of the “Critical Zone”, major ecosystems and socio-ecological systems, targeted at supporting knowledge-based decision making at various levels concerning ecosystem services and biodiversity. Advance_eLTER will closely cooperate with all LTER related processes and projects and will result in a 2017 eLTER ESFRI proposal
Duration: 1.1.2017 - 31.12.2017

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.
Duration: 1.6.2015 - 31.5.2019

European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity
Európske tématické 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.

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.
