Marie Pacakova
xymarie.pacakova@gacr.czhttps://gacr.cz/en/yespossiblynoGrant Agency of the Czech Republic, a section for support of the research. Open to all fields of science. The Czech Science Foundation (also known as the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic, GA CR) was established in 1993 as the main independent public organization with the aim to support basic research in the Czech Republic and promote international collaboration of researchers and research teams on the bilateral and multilateral levels. On the basis of calls for proposals, the Czech Science Foundation provides financial support for experienced as well as young and early-stage researchers. Moreover, it funds bilateral projects together with projects carried out within international research programmes. The subject of a project proposal is determined by the applicant (bottom-up principle). Around 2,500 project proposals are submitted to the GA CR every year, of which more than one-fourth obtain financial support. The GA CR invites proposals in all disciplines of basic research.

They use the Dutch knowledge agenda soil and subsurface (which is the same as the dutch contribution to the INSPIRATION agenda) as leading research questions. They set out different calls (next call is on climate / rural area, nature / infrastructure or energy, max 150 KEUR, 50% cofininancing needed, deadline Nov 29 2017 ) They are open for collaboration in europe. how and on which topics is not specified yest. Probably theyw ant to arrange this via the Knowledge and Innovation Program Soil and Subsurface (also entered in this database)

As such the organization has limited funding capacity. However Ms Alzola has tried to reflect in her responses the potential interest of the Department of Environment of the Basque Government with respect to the SRA. She is willing to participate in an online match making / meeting in the medium term though.

This research will reduce the occurrence, duration and severity of natural hazards, by developing alternative land use management strategies that will increase the natural resilience to floods, fires, land subsidence, erosion and landslides.

  • For founders
  • For endusers
  • For researchers
  • For citizens
Funders of research on how healthy soils with an adequate plant and tree cover contribute to stability to prevent erosion, landslides and avalanches, will experience return on investment in cost-effective, and more sustainable protection to these natural hazards.
Increased resilience to geo-hazards through nature-based solutions is of major benefit to end users, since it will create a safer living environment at lower overall costs with increased resilience to climate change while providing multiple co-benefits with respect to health, social cohesion and liveability.
Researching resilience to geo-hazards will need a integrated analysis of human-induced as well as natural occurrences of geo-hazards. Through improved understanding of geohazards, their occurrence, preconditions, causes and implications, adequate mitigation and prevention mechanisms can be established, to protect citizens and society.
Citizens will benefit from research aiming at increasing resilience to geo-hazards, since it will provide solutions that reduce the risks for citizens associated with geo-hazards, related to security, health and infrastructure.

A healthy soil with an adequate plant and tree cover is an important stability factor with regard to excess soil erosion, landslides and avalanches. These can hardly be equaled by technical means.

A healthy soil with an adequate plant and tree cover is an important stability factor with regard to erosion, landslides and avalanches. These factors can hardly be matched by technical means. For example, a healthy forest in alpine zones provides a solid avalanche protection. On the other hand, an alpine meadow which is not cultivated any more or which is covered with alder provides a poor avalanche protection. For the sake of completeness it has to be noted that “normal” processes of erosion followed by sediment transport can also be beneficial for low lands.
