Transformations to Sustainability

Transformations to Sustainability

CALL for funding proposals: Over €13 million available for social science led research.

Deadline: 5 April 2017

Climate change, environmental degradation and resource pressures have created unprecedented challenges for societies worldwide, with Low- and Middle-income countries (LMICs) often the most affected.

The slow progress on responding to global environmental change and the need for global development has led to increasing emphasis, both in research and policy, on the need to go beyond the study and encouragement of incremental change.

There is a need for more fundamental transformations in the way societies interact with each other and with the natural environment. What's needed is a comprehensive and concerted research initiative that can boost research on transformations to sustainability, and catalyse new kinds of solutions to environmental and social challenges.

The Belmont Forum, NORFACE and the ISSC together as the Transformations to Sustainability funders, are therefore launching the new funding programme 'Transformations to Sustainability' (T2S).

The funding call includes a total pool of at least €13 million over a period of three years, for international projects led by the social sciences or humanities. Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches are strongly encouraged.

Outline proposals must be submitted by 5 April 2017.
