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.
