Calling all nature-based solutions experts! Help us improve upon and expand our Nature-based solutions knowledge gaps database NetworkNature is collecting stakeholder-driven knowledge gaps on Nature-based Solutions (NbS) to contribute to the update of the Nature-based solutions knowledge gaps database first published in 2022. For the second time, this survey provides the NbS community with the opportunity to bring NbS knowledge gaps to the attention of major EU R&I programmers.  Knowledge gaps can be defined as pieces of knowledge, information or data that are missing or insufficient to allow the development or implementation of NbS at various scales. It can refer to gaps in research, in data, or in the access to and/or implementation of existing knowledge.

This survey is designed to inform European R&I programming efforts, by pinpointing key knowledge gaps identified by the NbS community at large.  The gaps will be collected and analysed, serving as a basis for co-developing R&I needs in dedicated sessions at NetworkNature annual events and updating the roadmap for EU Research and Innovation (R&I) on NbS. The next round of analysis of knowledge gaps submitted is planned for May 12nd, please be sure to submit your knowledge gaps by then.  The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.  Respondents will receive a synthetic analysis of gaps collected, as well as how these relate to the European R&I landscape on NbS analysed by NetworkNature.  If you have any questions regarding this work, including technical problems, please contact
