WHO WE ARE

CNRS, the French national centre for scientific research, is a public research organization with appox. 32,000 employees in more than 1,200 service and research units spread throughout the country. Interdisciplinary programs and actions offer a gateway into new domains of scientific investigation and enable CNRS to address the needs of society and industry. IMBE, the Mediterranean Institute of Biodiversity and Ecology was created on January 1, 2012, with the explicit aim to develop new approaches for science-based integrated management of biodiversity and ecosystems.Global ecology challenges at IMBE: 

  • Macro-ecology / biodiversity dynamics
  • Functional ecology / evolutionary ecology
  • Reconstitutions / predictions
  • Ecosystems / Society Interactions
  • Science-policy interface

 

WHAT OUR EXPERIENCE IS

With 200 staff members organized in 14 research teams working in 6 major research fields, including an interdisciplinary perspective towards the transfer of knowledge to the management of biodiversity, IMBE combines basic and applied biological field research with new approaches of modelling ecosystem processes at the continental scale.

WHAT WE DO IN EU BON

IMBE leads WP7. The ultimate goal is the prototype of a flexible and scalable system that can be implemented and used in different regional circumstances, allowing for global integration.

IN EU BON WE MAINLY CONTRIBUTE TO 

WP 4 Link environment to biodiversity: analyses of patterns, processes and trends
WP 6 Stakeholder engagement and science- policy dialogue
WP 7 (Lead) Implementation of GEO BON: strategies and solutions at European and global levels 

WE ARE ALSO INVOLVED IN

  • IPCC
  • IPBES
  • DIVERSITAS
  • GEO BON

 

Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Cramer
