Councils fund exploration of Colombia’s biodiversity

The Natural Environment Research Council and the Arts and Humanities Research Council have launched a call to investigate how Colombia’s biogenic resources can be used to enhance socio-economic development.

The call, announced on 21 September, invites researchers to bid for a share of up to £5.5 million. The councils expect to fund up to eight proposals of between £700,000 and £1.1m for up to three years, they said in a statement.

Supported by the Newton Fund, the call forms part of the UK’s Official Development Assistance commitment and aims to use novel technologies, concepts and social frameworks to better understand biodiversity in the regions of Boyacá and Cundinamarca.
