Apply now: The Restore4Life call for associated regions open by 29 May 2024

Funded by Horizon Europe, the Restore4Life project aims to address European wetlands' crises by developing a "Restore4Life Wetland Restoration Decision Support System" at the Danube Basin level. Restore4Life shares a similar vision with SELINA, and their collaboration has been recognised in the "Synergies" section of the SELINA website.

We are pleased to announce the Call for Associated Regions to participate in the Restore4Life project, launched in February 2024. Application submission is open until 29 May 2024.

The call seeks at least 5 Associated Regions* to provide them with technical assistance to use the outcomes and knowledge of Restore4Life to prepare roadmaps, plans, and projects to restore wetland ecosystems in their region. The aim is to share the results and knowledge of the project on an ongoing basis with the selected ‘associated regions’ and to provide them with scientific and technical support for the implementation of wetland restoration solutions in their territory. This will involve the twinning of each Associated Region with a similar demonstration site and the provision of technical advisory services necessary to prepare roadmaps, plans and projects to restore ecosystems in the associated regions addressing possible barriers and showing the feasibility of implementing innovative solutions.

Each region may apply for a grant of up to €100,000 to foster new opportunities and partnerships.

By joining Restore4Life as an Associated Region, the participants will have the opportunity to access the project expertise, knowledge, and tools to develop their own roadmap, plan, or project to restore wetland ecosystems in their region.

* Associated regions are understood as “areas with similar ecosystems (e.g., neighbouring regions and/or regions in a different river basin and/or less-developed regions, to build capacity to implement the innovative solutions) and abiotic, biotic and socio-economic conditions to at least one demonstrator site of Restore4Life.”
