Welcome to the homepage of the PRIDE programme. From 2015 until 2019 we will investigate the evolution and demise of lakes systems and biota in the Black Sea, Caspian Sea and surroundings.
The programme combines climate-, geo- and bio- sciences and is conducted by 15 Early Stage Researchers. The PRIDE network contains 21 partipating institutes. Here you can find the background of the programme, you can explore workpackages here (WP1, WP2, WP3, WP4) and here are the 15 projects outlined.
If you have any question? Please contact us here.

Proposals are invited on topics broadly related to sustainable mountain development: Climate change, Biodiversity, Forest Resources, Water resources and management, Land use and land cover change, Desertification, Mineral resources, Natural hazards and risks, Population, Cultural diversity, Tourism and Recreation, Landscape planning, Urban and rural development, Regional development policy, Socio-economic development, as well as cross-cutting topics including soils, Air pollution, New and renewable energy resources, Ecosystem services and The Economics of Ecosyste
To actively practise outreach, our PRIDE researcher Sabrina van de Velde visited Manchester a few weeks ago. There the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) conference took place, which is the biggest interdisciplinary general science meeting in Europe. It is organised biennially and welcomes over 4,500 leading thinkers, innovators, policy makers, journalists and educators from over 85 countries to talk about research. She wanted to reach a wider public and show the scientific world of the existence and importance of PRIDE.
You will be working on the project B2: palaeoenvironmental drivers of ostracod biodiversity change.
From now on the hashtag #PRIDEscience can be used in your messages to promote PRIDE research! Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, anywhere you like.
Aleksandre Gogaladze is in Kherson in Ukraine at the moment to liaise with stakeholders in the region.
During the first PRIDE training meeting thirteen Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) gathered in Romania to learn about different field techniques and collect their first data. Among them Manuel, a Spanish biologist working at the Brunel University in London.
