Theme Partnership Program
The Theme Partnership Program supports research into particularly complex—and critically important—climate mitigation and adaptation challenges.
Theme projects involve interdisciplinary teams of researchers and climate solution seekers (from the private and public sector) working together on thematic areas of high complexity and impact – from project outset, to results implementation. These projects generate new knowledge, build international leadership within British Columbia’s research community, and help drive further innovation in critical thematic areas.
Eligibility: Applications must be submitted by the project team’s Principle Investigator (PI) who is a fulltime faculty member at one of the four PICS supported universities: Simon Fraser University, the University of Victoria, the University of Northern British Columbia or the University of British Columbia. Significant participation of faculty from at least one of the four PICS supported universities is required and participation of faculty from more than one PICS university is encouraged.
Projects will be funded to a maximum of $250,000 per year, per project for up to four years. At least 50% of project funding must be spent to support graduate students or post-doctoral fellows’ salaries at PICS partner universities.
