The Belmont Forum launched a second Collaborative Research Action focused on Arctic region. The title of this international funding opportunity is “Resilience in Rapidly Changing Arctic Systems”. The call aims at bringing together researchers from natural and social sciences and other expertise across the globe to develop proposals from integrated teams of scientists and stakeholders to address key areas of arctic resilience understanding and action. This collaboration of academic and non-academic knowledge systems constitutes a transdisciplinary approach that will advance not only understanding of the fundamentals of arctic resilience but also spur action, inform decision-making, and translate into solutions for resilience.
Project teams must be international in their composition and must draw off of support from a minimum of three funding organisations supporting this call from minimum three different countries. The following funding organisations participate in the call: Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (Canada), Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education (Denmark), National Research Agency (France), Icelandic Center for Research (Iceland), Japan Science and Technology Agency (Japan), Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (Netherlands), Research Council of Norway (Norway), Russian Foundation for Basic Research (Russia), Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning (Sweden), and National Science Foundation (United States).
The deadline for the submission of proposals is on 14 June 2019. More information about the call can be found on the Belmont Forum website.
