    *Looking for partners active in nature conservation and environmental protection (nature parks, biosphere reserves, Natura 2000 sites etc.)

    Project title:
    Mitigating nocturnal habitat loss and the effect of light pollution on biodiversity in areas including marine, protected, and urban landscapes across the Mediterranean.

    Artificial light at night generated by human activity leads to habitat loss, increased habitat fragmentation, and directly impacts the decline of biodiversity. Growing light pollution levels are causing a decrease in dark habitats everywhere, including in marine, urban, and protected areas across the Mediterranean.

    Presently, there is no common EU-wide strategy nor policy on light pollution and nocturnal habitats conservation, and no EU Directive contains any binding obligations to limit the adverse effects of light pollution.

    The key objective of the project is thus to devise and test approaches to protect biodiversity and ecosystems through the restoration and conservation of nocturnal habitats across various landscape types within the program area, which will provide a foundation for the transferability strategy for the hybrid landscapes of the Mediterranean, and ground-breaking policy recommendations on the EU level.

    Few of our projects
    – ‘NEX-LABS’ ENI CBC MED project: ENI CBC MED project: is a €3.4 million project that aims to support the implementation of clean technologies for the sustainable and resilient growth of agri-food sector production based on more efficient use of energy (renewable/solar solutions) and water (wastewater treatment, water harvesting or reuse solutions) in Mediterranean Partner Countries region thanks to the contribution of ICT such as blockchain technology, Internet or the Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning and Big Data.

    – ‘Closing the gap between fork and farm for circular nutrient flows’ project aims at the implementation and exploration of innovative Nitrogen & Phosphorus recovery solutions for the utilization of human sanitary waste from urban settlements and its conversion into safe bio-based fertilisers for agricultural production (HORIZON-CL6-2022-ZEROPOLLUTION-01-02, Project number: 101081883, budget: 7.5 million).

    – FlexCHESS aims to revolutionize the existing paradigms of energy storage by developing a multi-level flexibility approach based on Virtual Energy Storage System (VESS) that can store surplus energy through hybrid energy storage systems (HESS) and modify their behaviour and architecture to support unpredictable growth and change of demand, climate and market (HORIZON-CL5-2022-D3-01, project number: 101096946, budget 3.6 Million)
