A European Research Infrastructure

AnaEE is a research infrastructure for experimental manipulation of managed and unmanaged terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. It will strongly support scientists in their analysis, assessment and forecasting of the impact of climate and other global changes on the services that ecosystems provide to society.

AnaEE will support European scientists and policymakers to develop solutions to the challenges of food security and environmental sustainability, with the aim of stimulating the growth of a vibrant bioeconomy. AnaEE will accomplish this mission by building permanent and substantial links among researchers, science managers, policy makers, public and private sector innovators, and citizens.




AnaEE (Infrastructure for Analysis and Experimentation on Ecosystems) is part of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures Roadmap (2010) as a new distributed EU infrastructure for ecosystem research.

It entered the Preparatory Phase on November 2012. The consortium is currently composed of 14 partners from 10 countries. AnaEE's building blocks will include state of the art in natura and in vitro experimental platforms equipped with the latest technology, associated with sophisticated analytical and modeling platforms coupled to observation and monitoring sites that will provide indispensable calibration and validation of datasets throughout Europe.

AnaEE will predict in a precise manner the response of the main continental ecosystems to environmental and land use changes.


  • 2012-2016 : Preparatory phase
  • 2014-2018 : Construction phase
  • 2018 onwards : Implementation phase



Anaee call for expression of interest

We are happy to inform you that the AnaEE Call for Expression of Interest, which aims to define the state-of-the-art platforms that will be part of AnaEE, has now officially been launched. You can read more here.


The 2nd AnaEE annual meeting will be held on 13-15 October 2014 (Monday-Wednesday) at the University of Antwerp (address: Hof van Liere, Prinsstraat 13, 2000 Antwerpen, Belgium). Please save the date in your calendar. 

AnaEE's stakeholder meeting will be held in Antwerp on Tuesday 14 October 2014. The day aims to bring together keynote speakers from some of the most important players in the world of research and policy to further deepen understanding among key stakeholders of the need for cooperation and coordination on scientific and economic challenges to achieve scientific and societal goals, while also allowing ample time for long and deep debate on key issues.

Expeer (Experimentation in ecosystem research)



ExpeER (Experimentation in Ecosystem Research) forms the building blocks of the AnaEE distributed infrastructure by federating and structuring key existing experimental (and observational) infrastructures in ecosystem research in Europe.  

AnaEE will enable many of the key infrastructures involved in ExpeER to be further enhanced and upgraded complemented by the development of  new sites and facilities so as to build an ambitious, state-of –the art Ecosystem Research Infrastructure with expert services at a pan-European Level.



AnaEE’s preparatory phase is co-funded by the EU under the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme from 2012 to 2016.
