  • About us — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    ALTER Net was instrumental in developing this major European research infrastructure The ALTER Net Summer School which has been providing training for young researchers in inter disciplinary approaches to biodiversity and ecosystems research since 2006 Establishment of a vibrant interdiscplinary research community which ALTER Net has championed and nurtured and actively supports through topical workshops Communication and knowledge transfer at interfaces such as scientist to scientist scientist to policymaker and with the general public Supporting the EU LifeWatch project developing the infrastructure for sharing biodiversity data of which ALTER Net is a founder member Development of a common data sharing policy Our journey 2004 2009 ALTER Net I ALTER Net began life in 2004 as an EU Network of Excellence Project no GOCE CT 2003 505298 Framework Programme 6 This phase we call it ALTER Net I ran until March 2009 and was coordinated by Terry Parr NERC CEH UK The project consisted of a series of linked Work Packages WP Six Work Packages dealt with the integration objectives whilst a further six covered the joint programme of research These Work Packages interacted and supported one another so that the research WPs in identifying gaps in knowledge tools etc informed the integration WPs which aimed to develop the necessary tools and frameworks for integration ALTER Net actively promoted interdisciplinary biodiversity and ecosystems research We launched our annual Summer School in this period and also developed the pan European LTER Europe network of long term research and observation sites A further two WPs were specifically tasked with the spread of excellence One WP addressed communication and dissemination and focussed on communication of biodiversity research to the wider community including other researchers the media and policymakers The second dealt with training and mobility issues so that the necessary skills base for biodiversity research and communication could be strengthened Final report of ALTER Net Phase I 2009 2014 ALTER Net II After the EU grant ceased in 2009 ALTER Net relied on financial support from its members From 2009 until 2011 we also benefited from generous support from the Norwegian Government which helped to fund the secretariat at NINA Jiska van Dijk headed the secretariat In this period of ALTER Net we established the ALTER Net Council and Management Board Terry Parr remained at the helm chairing the Council until 2011 before handing over to Eeva Furman of SYKE Finland The Secretariat also moved to SYKE at this time The Management Board was chaired first by Daniel Terrason CEMAGREF France then by Leon Braat Alterra Netherlands Twenty two of ALTER Net s original partners continued in the network Membership grew to 27 partner institutes in 18 countries ALTER Net helped to develop several project consortia which secured European Union FP7 research funds We continued to run our Summer School in Peyresq France and also organised several important events see Outputs for details ALTER Net became active in the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity Ecosystem Services and showed its strong support for BiodiversityKnowledge a network
