About BioAgora

BioAgora is a collaborative European project funded by the Horizon Europe programme. It aims to connect research results on biodiversity to the needs of decision-making in a targeted dialogue between scientists, other knowledge holders and policy actors.

Its main outcome will be the development of a fair and functional Science Service for Biodiversity, that will orchestrate processes and initiatives at the Science-Policy Interface at the European level.

BioAgora will support a sustainable transformation
for biodiversity
in Europe.

BioAgora will go beyond the state of the art by co-creating new ways of bridging the gap between science, practice, and policy, which will be used as a basis for the development of the Science Service for Biodiversity.

How will the project achieve its goals? BioAgora partners will:


Develop the Science Service for Biodiversity’s governance structure and systems model by testing it in real life and iteratively improving it over the project’s duration resulting in a fully functional service


Design demonstration cases across EU Member States that ratchet up the implementation of biodiversity commitments as planned in the EU’s Biodiversity Strategy for 2030


Analyse the existing landscape of Science-Policy Interfaces, assess their policy tools and the current biodiversity knowledge held in Europe


Provide tailored pathways on how to better orchestrate science-policy interactions to support the Biodiversity Strategy for 2030


Provide capacity building to empower the EU's multidisciplinary research community and diverse group of other knowledge holders and users in bringing transformative change for biodiversity


Engage with a broad range of actors such as policymakers, scientists, businesses, and citizens.
