In addition to the funding opportunities just described, which are specifically geared to biological diversity, there are other funding programmes within the BLE which promote projects on biological diversity in the respective thematic context.
The Federal Programme for Organic Agriculture and Other Forms of Sustainable Agriculture (BÖLN), for example, supports projects on organic vegetable breeding/variety of varieties and the marketing of regionally typical varieties and breeds.
The innovation promotion programme focuses on application-oriented research and development projects that implement marketable products, processes or services in close cooperation between science and industry. The programme has a broad thematic focus and, depending on the focus of current calls for funding, is also interesting for projects on biological diversity.
The protein crop strategy promotes the cultivation and processing of domestic protein crops. Interesting for projects on biodiversity in this thematic context.
