The ICSU Committee on Scientific Planning and Review has issued a call for applications for the ICSU Grants Programme 2013, which supports collaborative scientific initiatives of relevance to science and society. It is a competitive, peer-reviewed program that is open to ICSU Scientific Unions, interdisciplinary bodies, and joint initiatives. It enables collaboration with ICSU Regional Offices and other members of the ICSU community.
Proposals for 2013 grants must focus on ICSU’s strategic priorities listed below and should be international and multidisciplinary. ICSU encourages submission of innovative proposals that (i) actively involve the ICSU Regional Offices, (ii) promote the involvement of young scientists, women scientists, and scientists from developing countries, and/or (iii) forge new partnerships between organisations that do not routinely collaborate.
- Proposals should address, inter alia, issues such as water, energy, health, agriculture, and biodiversity and other issues that address the linked environmental, social, and economic dimensions of sustainable development.
- Proposals that address the need for dialogue between science and policy communities are encouraged. Proposals for review or assessment of scientific knowledge necessary for policy formulation are also welcome.
- Proposals should address, inter alia, issues such as data access, intellectual property rights, and the impact of recent developments in information technologies.
- Proposals for innovative endeavors to develop initiatives exploring new frontiers of science at the interface between different disciplines are encouraged.
The total funding available for the grants program in 2013 is
Euro 280 000, with a ceiling of Euro 30 000 for each application.
The grants program is strictly reserved for ICSU members. Applications submitted by IUPAC shall be coordinated from the IUPAC Secretariat. IUPAC members with an interest in developing such a proposal should contact their division president or project committee chair as soon as possible. The ICSU deadline for receipt of applications is 1 December 2012.
