Principal Investigators’ Meetings
About the Principal Investigators’ Meetings
NCCARF has been conducting Principal Investigators’ Meetings for all Adaptation Research Grant funded projects. The two terrestrial and freshwater biodiversity meetings were held back-to-back so that PI’s and stakeholders could attend both events and gain a thorough overview of NCCARF’s research portfolio in the terrestrial and freshwater biodiversity space.
The aim was to:
• bring together Principal Investigators and stakeholders;
• draw out synergies and linkages between the projects and project teams and to share ideas, challenges and approaches;
• share knowledge with stakeholders and begin the process of outreach and wide engagement;
• explore opportunities for cooperation in terms of data sharing and coordinated stakeholder engagement and information dissemination.
