A new opportunity has arisen to work with the Capitals Coalition.
We’re looking for a Project Officer to join our growing team.
We are looking for a well-organized, dynamic and engaging Project Officer to support the delivery of two new European Commission (EU Horizon) funded projects. Both projects offer the opportunity to become part of a growing network of natural capital and ecosystem services experts and to increase your knowledge of the practical application of the capitals approach and ecosystem services. For both projects you will support a dedicated part of the implementation.
You work closely with the project consortium partners, project team and stakeholders on topics like project tasks implementation, progress reporting and planning. You provide hands on support to the Project team and their stakeholders. In all, you support senior management in effective decision-making.
SELINA (Science for Evidence-based and sustainabLe decIsions about NAtural capital) will develop, integrate and apply innovative, robust and cutting-edge methodologies, information and data that can be harnessed to support protection, restoration and sustainable and climate neutral use of ecosystems in the EU by 2030, showing international leadership through the EUs contribution to global and national initiatives. The Consortium brings together leading experts in the field of Ecosystem Services research and its applications. The Capitals Coalition will lead on Work Package 9 Supporting evidence-based private decision-making in which several Demonstration Projects will be developed by consortium partners. SELINA is a 5-year EU funded project.
SUSTAIN (Strengthening Understanding and Strategies of business To Assess and Integrate Nature) aims to strengthen understanding and awareness of how all economic activities depend and impact on biodiversity. The project will build on existing work within the business and biodiversity space to develop and validate a database of business dependencies and impacts, develop methods that actors can use to reduce biodiversity-related risks, and a toolbox to support their application. The consortium will drive uptake of these resources through dissemination of targeted business case materials, drawing on existing networks and expertise in communicating with businesses, financial institutions and other key stakeholders. The Capitals Coalition is the Project Coordinator and will lead on Work Package 6 (Project Management) and support our technical knowledge to other work packages. SUSTAIN is a 3- year EU funded project.
