Call for proposals of research focus areas on biogeochemical cycles and climate change

Research area 4 has as its goal to facilitate research on biogeochemical cycles and climate. In order to maximize the interactions of Bolin Centre scientists and support productive research, Bolin Centre funding within RA 4 focuses on specific research areas (‘focus areas’). The output of each focus area is ideally a specific new synthesis, novel data, a database component, model results, and one or several publications. The timeline for a specific focus area is 24 months and should define clear targets for further funding applications (e.g., VR, Formas, EU, Wallenberg). Each focus area will receive up to 200 kSEK/year. A focus area starts off with a ½ to 1-day long Bolin Centre open workshop, in which the planned topic goals for the focus area are defined. The focus areas continuously update on progress on the Bolin Centre RA4 homepage. Two to four active focus areas are planned at any given time. The start and phase-out of the focus areas is staggered.

We invite all Bolin Centre members to submit a max 1-page proposal for a specific focus area. The proposal should define the scope of the focus area, have a clear time plan and defined topic goals, a budget, and a list of possible key participants, including the coordinator of the focus area. One of the RA 4 co-leaders must be participant in the focus area. The outcome of a focus area is evaluated by the RA 4 leaders after one year. The RA 4 leaders will evaluate and give response to the planned activity within 2 weeks.

Proposals should be sent to one of the Research Area 4 leaders Christian Beer (This email address is being protected from spambots.
