Objectives
The WP2 focuses on recruiting the ERA Chair holder and the Research and Support teams, involving tasks that will be developed early in the project and that are critical to the success of subsequent WPs. The staff should support the work of the Chair holder, providing the blend of complementary expertise and skills needed to promote the excellence of research, and the activities of fund raising, advanced training, knowledge mobilization, and public dissemination.
TASKS:
The following three tasks are strongly interrelated. These three WPs are at the core of TROPIBIO, because they will represent a major contribution to build the capacity of CIBIO and assure the sustainability of excellent research and innovation:

2.1. Recruitment of the ERA Chair
2.2. Recruitment of ERA Chair research team
2.3. Recruitment of ERA Chair support Team

5 - Maximising impact: connecting research with policy and practice
Objectives
This WP aims to set the mechanisms for maximising the impact of CIBIO’s research in the fields of tropical biodiversity and ecosystems, by enhancing the connections of research with policy and practice. Beyond knowledge transfer, which is normally related to the connection of researchers with industry to commercialise intellectual property, the focus will be on knowledge mobilization (KMb), whereby non-commercial research is connected with organizations seeking to maximise the social benefit of research by informing decisions about public policy and professional practice.
TASKS:
5.1. Knowledge mobilization planning
5.2. Stakeholder engagement programme
5.3. Development of Knowledge Mobilization flagship initiatives
Work Packages06
6 - Communication, Dissemination and Exploitation
Objectives
This WP aims to maximize the visibility and impact of the ERA Chair, and more generally that of CIBIO, at the regional, national and international levels, with a particular emphasis on the Portuguese-speaking African countries. It will include activities for dissemination of knowledge, networking, and raising international awareness of their research and innovation potential and achievements.
TASKS:
6.1. Project Communication and Dissemination Plan
6.2. Newsletters, Website and Social Media
6.3. Participation in Workshops and Conferences
6.4. Organisation of Meetings, Workshops and Conferences

7 - Independent evaluation
Objectives
The objective of this WP is to organise and develop an independent evaluation of TROPIBIO, which should contribute for maintaining the level of competence and the sustainability of the institution, as well as its contribution to societal challenges, and the ERA priority challenges. This is thus an important prerequisite to guarantee that CIBIO will continue to grow and evolve, even after the end of this project.
TASK:
7.1. Evaluation by an Independent Panel of Experts
