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.

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.
How trilling to finally meet everyone of the PRIDE program - all the colleagues, supervisors and partners from associated institutions in Romania. We – Aleksandre Gogaladze, Justine Vandendorpe, Liesbeth Jorissen, and Sifan Koriche are glad to share some impressions of our first two weeks together.
