Climate & Biodiversity Initiative: BNP Paribas finances research
Since 2010, the BNP Paribas Foundation has financed scientific research on climate and biodiversity, to the tune of 6 million euros every 3 years through project calls.
Since the Initiative's creation, 27 teams of scientists have been assisted and have achieved concrete achievements and great successes. Among these: The recent study on the impact of invasive exotic species coordinated by the CNRS researcher Frank Courchamp, in conjunction with the InvaCost database supported by the BNP Paribas Foundation. And the NOTION project carried out by the Mediterranean Oceanology Institute, which aims to anticipate planktonic cell reactions to future climate change, in terms of ocean diversity, activity and productivity.
