The research programme ”Pathways towards an efficient alignment of the financial system with the needs of biodiversity (BIOPATH)”, with Lund University as host, has been granted funding of SEK 50 million over a period of four years, starting September 2022. The financier is Mistra (Foundation for Environmental Strategic Research) and Susanne Arvidsson at LUSEM is the main applicant and programme director of BIOPATH.

In addition to the international research team, the BIOPATH consortium, include 34 influential partners from industry, the financial system and public authorities. 

“Our partners have been actively involved through the whole application process. Their engagement and enthusiasm for joining forces to find pathways for integrating biodiversity considerations in financial decision making has impressed me and inspired us to design an ambitious agenda for BIOPATH,“ says Susanne.

About the upcoming work Susanne says:

“We will continue to work side by side to develop, innovate and test the most viable and effective solutions needed to stop and reverse the loss of biodiversity. In this process, we utilize the potential in digital innovation and AI expertise.“
