Safeguarding European wild pollinators

Safeguard brings together world-leading researchers, NGOs, industry and policy experts to substantially contribute to Europe’s capacity to reverse the losses of wild pollinators. Safeguard will significantly expand current assessments of the status and trends of European wild pollinators including bees, butterflies, flies and other pollinating insects.

Safeguard is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project that started on 1 September 2021, and will continue until 31 August 2025. It aims to substantially contribute to reversing the loss of wild pollinators across Europe through increasing our understanding of the direct and indirect drivers of pollinator declines, environmental, economic and societal impacts and delivering an integrated assessment framework as basis for a portfolio of effective policy and practice solutions.
Safeguard homepage demonstrates the concepts and structure of Safeguard project and performs as a communication platform where project partners can exchange documents, announce events and news, manage deliverables and scientific publications, generate email list, and report research activities. It further serves as a central database where data is preserved following FAIR data principles (findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable) which can be exchanged under Safeguard Data Sharing and Publishing Policy.
