ALTER-Net  offer two open opportunities that are aimed particularly at staff and students in ALTER-Net partner organisations (though non-ALTER-Net organisations may also be included).
ALTER-Net Multi-Site Research (MSR)
Closing date: 01 August
Under the ALTER-Net Multi-Site Research (MSR) call, we’re seeking ideas for multi-site research collaborative projects. The predecessor of the MSR was called MSE (Multi-Site Experiments), via which several fundamental experiments on ecological questions were performed. The Multi-Site Research initiative is designed to enable not only research on fundamental ecological questions but other research relevant to ALTER-Net, e.g. on socio-ecological research issues (with, e.g. interview techniques, citizen science approaches, etc.). Hence, as well as ecological studies, the programme will consider socio-ecological research and studies addressing topics including eco-political issues, ecosystem services, ecosystem functioning, etc. The more or less pan-European distribution of ALTER-Net consortium partners potentially allows the inclusion of the majority of bio-geographical and (socio-)economical regions in Europe.

ALTER-Net High Impact Actions (AHIA)
Closing date: 01 September
This call for proposals is aimed at scientists working at or affiliated to 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 (and including non-members of ALTER-Net) and to create a high impact paper and other deliverables.
