The call for research proposals (APR) aims to support the ambitions of ITTECOP's partners, both public and private players in the infrastructure sector, to anticipate and support future decision-making needs in the face of global change and declining biodiversity. The projects supported by this call will be assessed on the basis of their willingness to present breakthrough concepts that are highly multi-disciplinary and involve conceptual risk-taking combined with scientific excellence.

The APR ITTECOP 2024, entitled "Comprehensive approaches of infrastructure at the landscape scale amidst global change and biodiversity decline" is built around three axes:

  • Integrating infrastructures into living territories;
  • Transformations and the life of projects;
  • New knowledge for territorial action.

The infrastructures targeted by this APR are: road, cycle and motorway networks, railways and inland waterways, cable transport, electricity and gas networks, renewable energy production infrastructures (with a possible comparison with traditional energy infrastructure issues) and territorial interfaces (river or sea ports, stations, airports). The rights of way of these infrastructures are included in the scope of this RPA, and are even particularly problematic for research on these subjects. Several response formats will be possible: research projects, systematic reviews, exploratory projects, incubator projects or CESAB projects. European or international collaborations are possible. The RPA has a budget of around €4 million. It aims to support around twenty projects.

CESAB projects are subject to a specific call and submission system. The deadline for applications is 12 June - more information at
