Project: Research

Project Details


With this application, we would like to apply for financial support to organize a workshop on Nordic Blue Carbon Ecosystems (BCE) in September 2019 in Copenhagen. The workshop is a collabora-tion between the Blue Carbon Initiative (BCI) and the key experts on Blue Carbon in the Nordic countries (see details on the workshop below). The workshop will consist of three days dedicated to scientific presentations and discussions with an optional day for an excursion to visit a BCE project site. The total number of participants is set to around 60, with equal representation from the Blue Carbon Scientific Working Group, local and regional decision maker and marine ecosystem managers, and key scientists from the Nordic countries. The total workshop budget is estimated at 854.000 DKK. We kindly request funding from the Villum Foundation for 425.000 DKK towards the cost of the meeting. The remaining funds will be raised by BCI and Nordic partners.
