SOLSTICE is a joint transnational call for proposals. We're inviting the Social Sciences and Humanities to take the lead and submit proposals that address the societal impact of climate change.
SOLSTICE consists of 10 European countries (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Italy, Ireland, Latvia, Norway and the United Kingdom) who have partnered to offer funding opportunities to all SSH communities. If you have an innovative proposal that can inform or even trigger change, submit it to us on this platform! The final submission deadline is on 3/02/2020
Check out the following presentation on SOLSTICE:
WE'VE RECEIVED MANY REQUESTS FROM INTERESTED RESEARCHERS LOOKING TO JOIN A PROPOSAL, AND FROM EXISTING PROPOSALS LOOKING FOR THE RIGHT PARTNER TO ADD TO THEIR RESEARCH! To help you find each other, we propose using the following Hangout conversation: https://hangouts.google.com/group/4N4yhUV2T6BR1VAs6
Looking for the right partners/the right project? Try posting what you're searching for there! We also used this Hangout for our Q&A session on 9/12, so you can also find some common questions there.
'We need to manage a major transition or it will manage us. The insights of Social Sciences and Humanities are essential to informing a positive transformation in the face of climate change' - Frank McGovern, Joint Programme Initiative Climate Chair.
Transformational change requires innovative approaches and novel interdisciplinary collaboration. We encourage inclusion of those who are not traditional participants in climate change research, as well as outreach to non-scientific societal actors. Building on emerging trends of research, we want your proposal to address one or more of the following topics:
Social justice and participation
Sense making, cultural meaning and risk perception
Transformative finance and economy
We'll be accepting proposals until the 3rd of February 2020. Remember to complete the Project Outline section by the 9th of January. To learn more about the call and the full scope of our topics, please read our guidelines for applicants!
SOLSTICE is launched by the Joint Programming Initiative "Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe" (JPI Climate) is a pan-European intergovernmental initiative gathering European countries to jointly coordinate climate research and fund new transnational research initiatives that provide useful climate knowledge and services for post-COP21 Climate Action.
