Successful allocation of Є1.8 million funding

To ensure a lasting and impactful transformation, the European-wide TETTRIs project has asked the wider community to co-create and test solutions. A call for funding was published in June, 2023. 54 applications were received from all over the continent.

Almost one third of TETTRIs Є6 million has been successfully allocated to 12 external projects who applied for this cascade-funding. These projects extend the TETTRIs community beyond the initial beneficiaries. These projects will help establish open access to collections data, design and test novel artificial intelligence and molecular tools, test training frameworks and involve citizen scientists in monitoring biodiversity hotspots.

This community-based perspective is fundamental to the entire ethos of TETTRIs.

Below are the 12 projects. In the coming weeks we will publish the details of each project.
Congratulations to the teams! Looking forward to working with you.
