As part of Azim Premji University’s efforts to strengthen and elevate action on climate change, they are launching a Research Funding Programme.
Call for Proposals!
Inviting high-quality proposals that examine significant questions of public concern in the following three areas:
- Climate change education and outreach
- Climate change policy and action
- Climate change adaptation in various sectors of development practice
The funding programme is designed to strengthen and supplement our existing efforts in these areas. While we are open to any broad consideration within the area, the research should be empirically grounded, and be able to directly inform and engage with education and outreach, policy or practice.
APU is especially seeking proposals in emerging areas of major relevance such as climate change communication, climate change and health, and climate change in cities.
Successful projects must have a strong component of action in some form: projects that are solely research-focused will not be considered in this call.
The duration of projects is for 1 year, and size of the research fund is a maximum of Rs.20 lakhs per proposal
Interested applicants should submit the following via the online portal which will be open on 20th August, 2019
Please note that the portal will remain available until, 5.00PM (IST) October 15th, 2019, the last date for concept note submissions.
Research Funds will be awarded primarily to individuals or teams affiliated with academic and teaching institutions, think tanks, NGOs and other centers of vital research and action both in India and elsewhere. We encourage a diversity of interested applicants in the fields of education, creative arts, development practice, public policy, media, academia, and other areas of relevance to submit proposals.
