A Polish research team, headed by Professor Jan Marcin Węsławski from the Institute of Oceanology at the Polish Academy of Sciences in Sopot, has made the list of winners of the BiodivScen call for international research projects focused on biodiversity and ecosystems. The call was organised by the BiodivERsA consortium, the umbrella for the National Science Centre, and the Belmont Forum network.

Within the framework of the successful ACCESS project, Polish researchers, alongside partners from Denmark, Norway, Canada and the US, will study the deglaciation of the Arctic coastline.

Entitled Scenarios of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, the call drew 143 submissions. 21 research projects were selected to receive funding of over 28 million Euro.
