EKLIPSE’s first joint science-policy-society conference

EKLIPSE’s first joint science-policy-society conference on a Knowledge and Learning Mechanism for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services took place on 7 and 8 December 2016, at the Belgian Science Policy Office in Brussels.

The EU funded EKLIPSE project held the first joint science-policy-society conference on a Knowledge and Learning Mechanism for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services in Brussels.  The two-day event was held on the 7th and 8th of December and brought together a diverse range of participants from different disciplines and countries across Europe.  The EKLIPSE project aims to establish a robust and flexible long-term mechanism for policy support on issues related to Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, communicating and engaging a wide set of knowledge holders in its work and ensuring tailor-made outreach of results – to knowledge requesters and to society more broadly. 

In addition to a number of in-depth presentation on the EKLIPSE project work packages, the conference ran a number of interactive sessions which focused on various aspects of the project such as online platforms, stakeholder engagement and capacity building.  The conference closed with participants exploring different means by which they could engage with the project going forward.

ICRE8 is involved in the project as part of 'the networks of networks' and participating over the 2 days was Dr Ebun Akinsete, Senior Researcher at ICRE8.
