2019 AHIA Call for Proposals Released

The 2019 AHIA Call for Proposals is OPEN

The ALTER-Net High Impact Actions (AHIA) initiative is aimed at scientists working at or affiliated with 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 (not excluding non-members of Alter-Net) and create a high impact paper and additional deliverables.

Calls for proposals are made once or twice a year, inviting staff at ALTER-Net partner institutes to submit proposals for small projects that are expected to result in the submission of a paper in a high impact journal. The proposals must involve partners working together in collaboration. Although aimed principally at ALTER-Net members, non-members may also be included in proposals, though the lead organisation must be a member of ALTER-Net.

Key information on this year's AHIA Call:

  • Opens: 28 January 2019
  • Deadline for proposal submission: 30 March 2019
  • Funding Resources: €20,000.00
