Two New ICRE8 Projects!
ICRE8 is enthusiastic about participating in the newly funded H2020 projects:
SIMRA: Social Innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas
Coordinator: James Hutton Institute
SIMRA’s overarching objective is to fill the significant knowledge gap in understanding and enhancing social innovation in marginalised rural areas by advancing the state-of-the-art in social innovation and connected governance mechanisms in agriculture and forestry sectors and in rural development in general.
SMIRES: Science and Management of Intermittent Rivers and Ephemeral Streams (IRES)
Coordinator: Institut national de recherche en sciences et technologies pour l'environnement et l'agriculture
This Action will bring together hydrologists, biogeochemists, ecologists, environmental economists, social researchers and stakeholders from 14 different countries to develop a research network for synthesising the fragmented and recent knowledge on IRES, improving our understanding of IRES ecology, and translating this into science-based, sustainable management of river networks.
ICRE8 has received funding for two more interdisciplinary projects and one cost action project!
