Work Packages & Lead Participants
  • WP 1 – Management
  • Universität Wien

    WP1 will draw on extensive consortium EU project experience to ensure the smooth internal management and timely submission of all deliverables. WP1 will ensure: an efficient collaboration among partners within and beyond the consortium including the Commission; project objectives are fulfilled on time and within budget; high-quality standards are met; and the expected project impact is achieved.

  • WP 2 – Global perspectives
  • Fundación Privada Instituto de Salud Global Barcelona

    WP2 will
    a) Support the article search phase of multiple reviews and establish data needs for other WPs;
    b) Generate a Systematic Map of peer-reviewed NbT programmes to characterize/spatially illustrate global evidence-based NbTs across different sociocultural/environmental contexts;
    c) Develop an online interactive mapping tool to provide easily accessible and interpretable summaries of peer-reviewed NbTs for multi-sectoral practitioners, researchers, entrepreneurs, and policy-makers;
    d) Use the beta-version of the on-line tool to stimulate a series of Grand Rounds with the aim of contributing to exchanges between ongoing and upcoming related projects for optimising cooperation, utilization, expansion, knowledge generation, and global impact between NbTs.

  • WP 3 – Case studies
  • Universität Wien

    WP3 will oversee 9 high-quality Case Studies, three at each level of the health promotion/disease prevention pyramid, to achieve the following sub-objectives:
    a) Employ longitudinal prospective methods to explore issues including: when people visit nature, their experiences, type/dose issues; statistical moderators e.g. age, gender, socio-economic status and culture; and how greenness quantity/quality and geographical locations affect the health-nature relationships;
    b) Employ (quasi-) experiments and well-controlled interventions to provide more evidence of the causal relationships between nature and health and well-being;
    c) Test nature therapy sessions.

  • WP 4 – Health and health equity
  • EuroHealthNet

    WP4 aims to achieve two distinct objectives:
    a) Improved understanding of the distributional health impacts of NbTs;
    b) Greater clarity about the concerns, challenges, barriers, needs, and opportunities of NbTs to improve health/well-being at different levels of the prevention pyramid, and provide guidance to health professionals to increase NbT uptake.

  • WP 5 – Environment
  • Fundacion Azti – Azti Fundazioa

    WP5 will consider the implications of NbTs for environmental goals both in terms of risks and opportunities. There are two distinct objectives:
    a) Assessment of CS impact on ecosystems and estimation of “maximum carrying capacity”;
    b) Monitoring changes in pro-environmental attitudes/behaviours by CS participants/stakeholders.

  • WP 6 – Economy
  • Etifor SRL

    WP6 has three key objectives which involve understanding and clarifying:
    a) The economic value of the ecosystem services benefits to health/well-being from nature;
    b) If such therapies are cost-effective by comparing them to traditional alternatives;
    c) The public and private market and finance potential of NbTs for different sectors.

  • WP 7 – Society (Social Innovation Actions)
  • Universita degli Studi di Padova

    WP7 objectives are;
    a) To identify, examine, and classify the factors that promote or hinder awareness and social acceptance of NbT interventions in different socio-economic, institutional, and geographical contexts.
    b) To identify and build on possible linkages between healthcare, social and educational sectors with green space management, nature protection, agriculture, and forestry sectors based on the analysis of networks and characteristics of three CSs with social innovation potential.
    c) To facilitate and support the design/establishment/implementation and scaling of NbT interventions in the three selected CSs to help local communities turn NbTs into innovative opportunities for community resilience, green job creation and nature protection, using Social Innovation Actions (SIAs).

  • WP 8 – What works
  • University of Exeter

    WP8 Tasks will bring all the various parts together in order to contribute significantly to: “A sharper view of green space management, nature protection, agriculture and forestry sectors as care providers and their possible linkages with the healthcare, social and educational sectors”.
    a) Conduct process evaluations of Level 2&3 CSs to investigate ‘what works’ in terms of intervention delivery including mechanisms, barriers/enablers, and design, training, delivery, receipt, and enactment fidelity;
    b) Conduct cross-sectoral scenario analyses to estimate the combined health, environmental, economic, and societal impact (benefits & risks) of scaling-up (increasing participants) of selected CSs at the local level, and scaling-out (replicating) across different geographical and/or socio-economic contexts;
    c) Provide a comprehensive 360° cross-sectoral view of successful NbT processes, impacts, and futures.

  • WP 9 – Communications
  • Nature Based Solutions Institute AB

    WP9 will contribute to realising the ambitions of RESONATE by:
    a) Communicating and disseminating project findings with a range of target audiences;
    b) Enhancing project impact and ensuring the project’s legacy by supporting the planning of longer-term exploitation of project results, e.g., through wider adoption of good practice and making available a knowledge base that has a legacy beyond the project.

  • WP 10 – Ethics, data management, & open science
  • Universität Wien

    The objectives of WP10 are to ensure that all work conducted within RESONATE is conducted to the very highest ethical, data management, and open science principles.
