A cross-WG meeting held at BTO Scotland, Stirling, UK has concluded. The meeting reviewed current Action progress and developed further the Proof of Concept case study, building on ideas outlined at the meetings in Thessaloniki and Florence.
The COST Association today approved an amendment to the Work Budget and Plan for ERBFacility, providing an additional c. €48,000 to the Action for the current Grant Period 2 (to end April 2019). This will permit more participants to attend the planned meetings in this Period.
A number of ERBFacility participants are involved in a new project funded by LIFE, the EU's dedicated funding instrument for the environment.
LIFE APEX is part-inspired by ERBFacility and the precursor EURAPMON project and will demonstrate biomonitoring using apex predators (including raptors) in support of EU chemicals legislation.
The ERBFacility Management Committee has approved the Work Budget and Plan for Grant Period 2 (1 May 2018 to 30 April 2019)
