Eklipse was created in 2016 to help governments, institutions, businesses and NGOs make better-informed decisions when it comes to biodiversity in Europe. A European Union funded project until November 2020, it is now managed by Alternet, the European Science-Policy Interface on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services.

Eklipse spreads its wings as the science-policy-society interface for biodiversity in Europe

Together with the whole Eklipse community, we have achieved our aim of developing a robust and trust-worthy science-policy-society process. From the 1st December we are handing this mechanism over to the broader community, with Eklipse management under the Alternet umbrella to ensure that Eklipse continues to support decision making on biodiversity in Europe in the long-term.
