Where the wild things go
What’s the European Tracking Network all about? Who are we? What do we do? And more importantly, why does our work matter? We track the underwater world using telemetry, in an effort to better understand, protect and management aquatic life. Find out a little bit about what we do here…
EndlessMetal - the project
This video presents the ENDLESS Metal COST Innovators Grant. The project aims to provide cultural heritage professionals with low-cost & easy-to-use analytical tools to support metal heritage conservation. These tools will greatly assist the in-house diagnosis and investigation of corrosion, essential for establishing appropriate conservation strategies.

Roma girls support during COVID
The European Family Support Network. A bottom-up, evidence-based and multidisciplinary approach (EurofamNet) have produced a video to promote the RoMOMatterR project, a transnational European initiative that aims to tackle gender discrimination by empowering Romani girls in Bulgaria, Romania and Spain. In this video, Romani teenage girls from Córdoba (Spain) advocate for their dreams and for the resources they need to achieve them, while they send their recommendations to their communities, policymakers and other key stakeholders. Local activists, families, members from grassroots organizations, policymakers and researchers explain the process and send their messages of support to Romani teenage girls to envision their own futures and equipping them with psychological, psychosocial and community strengths.
EurofamNet: Who we are

Genetic Biodiversity and G-BiKE COST Action
Get to know the G-BiKE, COST Action (CA18134) that unites European scientists and practitioners in environmental conservation. Our resident scientist, Dr Ciconia nigra, and practitioner, Mr. Fagus will tell you how knowledge about genetic biodiversity, both within and between species, can be employed to protect nature and ensure the resilience of ecosystems.
Monitoring the genetic status of populations
Dr Ciconia Nigra and Mr. Fagus are back on behalf of G-BiKE COST Action to explain how DNA analysis is used in monitoring of the genetic diversity, from the sample collection to data analysis. Learn what indicators can we use to monitor and conserve as much genetic diversity as possible.
