The financial group has not yet formally met. However any member may be approached by those applying for research grants that may include EPD activities. Meetings and activities are currently financed through the EU Network of Excellence EVOLTREE http://www.evoltree.org/ (Members Bradshaw and De Beaulieu) but this support will end during 2009. During the past 4 years, the EUROCLIMATE DECVEG has also supported EPD activities (leader Bradshaw). So grant writers, don't forget the EPD. It can be an asset to your application and research.
