UArctric –2024 Frederik Paulsen Arctic Academic Action Award


Event details

Date 30.04.2024
Category Call for proposal
Aim: The goal of the Arctic Academic Action Award is to further the development of new ideas that could contribute materially to preventing, mitigating, adapting, and reversing the effects of climate change in the Arctic.
Nominees should propose creative ideas that are action- and results-oriented and at an early stage of development. These ideas should nevertheless be grounded in academic research and scholarship, while also, where appropriate, giving due regard to the knowledge practices of Arctic residents, including Indigenous peoples. Nominations should describe an action that addresses the causes or impacts of climate change on the Arctic region. Ideas can be broad in scope, or geared toward local issues but could have results scalable to the entire Arctic region, and potentially beyond. We are looking for bright new ideas from people/groups with a demonstrable drive to see something achievable happen, and in the near future.

Duration:     Unrestricted

Funding:      EUR 100,000

Eligibility: The call for nominations is inclusive and open to all. Nominations can come from individuals or small groups, including community groups and organizations. Both self-nominations and nominations from others on behalf of the idea are accepted. In addition to established experts, emerging and mid-career professionals are encouraged to apply with ideas

How to Apply: Applications are submitted online through the dedicated form. Your application must include the following: project description, CV, and up to 3 letters of support.

Application Deadline: 30 April 2024
