Eklipse is an autonomous, self-sustaining, non-profit science-policy interface mechanism under the management of Alternet. From 2016 through 2020, Eklipse was an EU H2020 funded project.

Eklipse’s main aim is to fill the gap at the European Science Policy Interface (SPI) by establishing a self-sustainable European support mechanism for evidence-informed policy on biodiversity and ecosystem services.

SPI Seminars

The Alternet SPI Seminar Series features conversations from the European science-policy interface on biodiversity and ecosystem services hosted by our partner institutes.

In 2019, UFZ hosted the first Alternet-associated science policy interface webinar. Now re-launched as a regular network activity, SYKE held the first in our new rotating series of partner-hosted webinars in February 2022.
