Operationalising the ecosystem services concept: Dr Paula Harrison introduces two major new EU projects

July 9, 2013

Dr Paula Harrison has been involved in EU-commissioned biodiversity research for over twenty years. In this short video interview she outlines the aims and activities of two major new projects – OpenNESS and OPERAs – that aim to operationalise the concept of ecosystems services by applying it to a range of management problems. Together these two projects involve researchers from over 60 institutions across Europe and represent a five-year, Euro 18 million investment in ecosystem services research.

In the second part of this interview Paula will take us on a tour of EU-commission biodiversity and ecosystem research projects.
