27/10/2021 | The MeerWissen Initiative hosted a lively Information Session on the 20th of October regarding the recently launched 3rd Call for Proposals on marine and coastal Nature-based Solutions. More than 70 participants were informed about the MeerWissen funding programme, the 3rd Call for Proposals on Nature-based Solutions and the Guidance on Co-design. The Information Session highlighted the importance of a Co-design approach for solution-oriented research to ensure that project partners are jointly setting priorities and that outcomes meet local needs and can be used by all partners as well as decision-makers.

On behalf of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), ZMT moderated the event and presented a guidance on co-designing research partnerships. With its new call for proposals the MeerWissen Initiative is supporting a dedicated Co-Design Phase.
