PICS Climate Solutions Research - Opportunity Projects Program
Developing effective solutions to tackle human-induced climate change relies on interdisciplinary approaches and collaboration between researchers and climate solution decision-makers. PICS unites experts from British Columbia’s four research universities with government, businesses and community leaders to generate evidence-based, usable and durable solutions to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Our climate solutions research supports BC’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets and contributes to resiliency across industry, business and multi-level government policies.
Our new Opportunity Project Program aims to advance new entrants and unleash emerging leaders with innovative ideas and approaches. The targeted and relatively short-term focus of this program will encourage researchers to take bold, but calculated, risks in pursuit of high-impact results, in partnership with their Solution Seeker partners. The Opportunity Projects Program provides support to active partnerships between climate solution seekers and academic researchers that support mutual learning for solution co-development. Teams comprising two or more researchers from diverse disciplines and solution seekers with complementary research and implementation skills are strongly encouraged to apply.
Funding Amount: Each award is capped at $60,000 per year for a maximum three year duration
Deadline: Applications close on August 4, 2020 at 11:59 p.m.
Notification of adjudication decisions will be made by December 1, 2020. Applicants are encouraged to contact PICS staff to discuss their proposal before submitting an application. Enquiries should be directed to email@example.com.
