Finalised projects


Finalised projects related to SESS

EcoStack (H2020) - Stacking of ecosystems services: mechanisms and interactions for optimal crop protection, pollination enhancement, and productivity

  • EcoStack aims to develop and support ecologically, economically and socially sustainable crop production via stacking and protection of functional biodiversity

Field Ecospace (ICØL, LBST) - Consideration of nature in organic farming

  • Qualifying the possibility to document the organic farm contributions to support biodiversity and thus fulfilling the EU's objectives for increased biodiversity in arable land.

IPol-ERA (EFSA) - Development of roadmap for advancing the environmental risk assessment of chemical pesticides for insect pollinators

  • IPol-ERA aims to advance the environmental risk assessment (ERA) of chemicals (such as plant protection products, biocides, veterinary drugs, fertilisers) for insect pollinators. The project will address current risk assessment challenges related to systems approacjeds and ensure preparedness for future challenges.

B-GOOD (H2020) - Giving Beekeeping Guidance by cOmputatiOnal-assisted Decision making

  • B-GOOD has the overall goal to provide guidance for beekeepers and help them make better and more informed decisions.

PoshBee (H2020) - Pan-european assessment, monitoring and migration Of Stressors on the Health of BEEs

  • PoshBee aims to support healthy bee populations, sustainable beekeeping and pollination across Europe. Integrating the knowledge and experience of academics, beekeepers and farmers.

ELONTA (UBA) - Landscape structure and ERA of NTAs

  • Evaluating the impact of landscape structure and source-sink dynamics on non-target arthropod pesticide risk assessments in Germany.

Honey bee pollen (DAA) - What is the relationship between pollen diet, varroa infestation and winter mortality in landscapes in Denmark

  • This project aimed to identify key pollen sources during the flowering season, investigate growth rate of varroa and winter mortality of colonies placed in different landscape contexts and differing in pollen diet.    

PERA (EFSA) - Building a European partnership for next generation, systems-based environmental risk assessment

  • PERA aimed to create an overarching framework within which relevant partners can be identified and connected to create aroadmap for the transition to the next generation systems approach for environmental risk assessment (ERA). The PERA approach was multi-disciplinary, linking previously separate ‘silos’ within regulatory ERA as well as extending the scope to include those facets necessary for the systems approach.

Data collection for validation of ApisRAM (EFSA)

  • This project provided us with a better undstanding and ability to predict how bee colonies are affected by the many stressors present in the landscape.

Anticoagulant rodenticide resistance in rodents (DEPA)

  • This project examined resistance development in rodents and the effects of rodenticides on non-target species.
