Belmont Forum Collaborative Research Action: Climate, Environment, and Health II 2023


Event details

Date 15.07.2023
Category Call for proposal

To address the nexus of Climate, Environment, and Health. The purpose of this call is to address an unmet need to promote, mobilize, and establish an inclusive, transdisciplinary funding scheme, through the preservation and celebration of diverse communities, research topics, ecosystems, and creative transformative solutions. The ambitious goal for this CRA will hopefully create a comprehensive culture shift through education, research, service, and advocacy to inspire a world where all animals and humans can thrive — through the integration of human medicine, veterinary medicine, and environmental science — and by adapting and protecting Earth’s natural systems for generations to come.
The call themes are:

  • Theme 1 – Decision-science of Environmental Behavior and Implementation
  • Theme 2 – Food, Environment, and Biological Security
  • Theme 3 – Climate Risks to Ecosystems & Populations

  • $50,000 USD
  • Co-funding requirement:
    • The MRI funding assumes and expects that substantial co-funding will be sought so that the resources necessary to carry out projects will not be fully dependent on the MRI’s contribution. Co-funding is a key condition for projects seeking funds.
    • Co-funding should include, but is not limited to, funding provided by the other Belmont Forum funding partners on this call.
  • Up to 3 years
  • Prior to pre-proposal submission:
  • A brief communication or expression of interest will need to be submitted to the MRI via email ([email protected]) ahead of the proposal submission, indicating that the consortia will submit a proposal that requests funding or in-kind contribution from the MRI as part of its proposed requested budget. 
  • Pre-proposal (mandatory for full proposal submission): 15 July 2023, 20:00 UTC 
  • Capacity Building Activities and Collaborative Networking activities
    • In progress and will continue to December 2023
    • Activities and projects are voluntary and are designed to enhance each consortia’s proposal
