A new Jean-Monnet project involving Erda RTE is selected for funding

Submitted by anton

The latest selection round of Jean-Monnet project applications was lucky for Erda RTE: JM project GRASS - EU governance of natural resources: geopolitics, regions and sectors was approved for funding. This 2-year action is led by our Russian partner, Pskov State University, and includes 5 more partners. The research focus is on the development and impact of EU natural resource policies on Belarus and Russia. We will organise 3 seminars exploring biodiversity governance, as well as Arctic and Baltic dimensions of EU natural resource governance, a final conference in Pskov wrapping up our researc findings, and develop at least 4 papers (the ambition is to put together a special issue of a high profile journal), and a policy brief in Russian.
