International Joint Initiative for Research on Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation
Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)
The Canadian New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF) funds interdisciplinary, high-risk/high-reward, transformative research led by Canadian researchers working with Canadian and international partners. The NFRF is under the strategic direction of the Canada Research Coordinating Committee (CRCC) which advances federal research priorities and the coordination of policies and programmes of Canada's research funding agencies and the Canada Foundation for Innovation.
Canada is leading an "International Joint Initiative for Research on Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation". This initiative represents a collaboration between research funders from Brazil, Germany, Norway, South Africa, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States to leverage international expertise to tackle the global challenges caused by climate change.
This initiative aims to further the design and implementation of co-produced adaptation and mitigation strategies for vulnerable groups - those groups currently most impacted by the effects of climate change, owing to both physical and socioeconomic vulnerability.
Developing strategies to improve resilience to climate change requires an interdisciplinary approach involving expertise across disciplines, including the natural sciences, engineering, health sciences, social sciences and humanities, and across sectors, including academia, government, not-for-profit, community and private industry.
This competition requires that projects address at least two of the eight representative key risks identified in the Sixth Assessment Report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which highlights that unprecedented changes in Earth's climate are being observed in every region, impacting all ecosystems and societies, and will continue to intensify with further warming.
A minimum of three countries must be represented among the co-PIs. Funding will be distributed among the research partners according to the funding rules of each individual agency, in the case of researchers based in Germany according to the funding rules of the German Research Foundation (DFG) (Individual Grants Programme/Sachbeihilfe).
Details on the call can be found in the NFRF call text at the link below. Please also take note of the national annexes linked on this website as they specify the additional rules and regulations that apply to each national team.
A notice of intent (NOI) to apply is mandatory; NOIs are due 2 May 2023. The closing date for the full proposals is Tuesday, 12 September 2023.
