The Breeding Waders EIP deadline has officially been extended.
The €25 million Call for Proposals for a European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on the theme of Breeding Waders has been extended. The Call will now officially close at 5pm on Tuesday the 30th of January 2024.
The key objectives of this EIP project will be to secure existing breeding wader populations. These include Curlew, Dunlin, Lapwing, and Golden Plover, among others, at key sites. The EIP project will support population recovery through wider landscape management and policy development.
All populations are currently in unfavourable conservation status, with many populations declining by as much as 98% in recent decades and some are threatened with national extinction as breeding birds.
Further information on the European Innovation Partnership initiative and the guidelines for this call for proposals can be accessed on the department website at www.gov.ie/en/service/18a855-european-innovation-partnership-scheme/ or by contacting [email protected].
