Projects should investigate both the physical and biological importance and the value of current ecosystems, and what can potentially be achieved through improved management. Projects should also look into an economic valuation of these ecosystems. Potential ecosystems to be investigated are: blue mussel beds, kelp forests, eelgrass beds and Charophyceae beds.

Projects will provide an overview of the available information on the area, focusing on describing and specifying the benefits and value of ecosystem services in coastal areas through specific examples.

Project proposals may be written in a Scandinavian language or English.

The budget for the project is DKK450,000. Projects must be initiated in 2015 and the final report be delivered in 2016.
