Twenty-six international cooperation projects related to various aspects of the dynamics of biodiversity ( soil / sediment and blue - green infrastructure ) is recommended funded . This includes nine with Norwegian participation. The projects are a response to a call for proposals under the ERA-net Cofund BiodivERsA3.

The themes are:

1: "Understanding and managing the biodiversity dynamics of soils and sediments to improve ecosystem functioning and delivery of ecosystem services"  

2: " Understanding and managing biodiversity dynamics in country - , River- and sea - scapes ( habitat connectivity , green and blue infrastructures , and naturing stad ) to improve ecosystem functioning and delivery of ecosystem services " .

The budget totaled almost 34 million Euros .
