April 23, 2014 New ISSC research funding programme for 2014


Attention to all researchers from the social, capsule behavioural and economic sciences!

On 31 March 2014, the Transformations to Sustainability Programme was launched by the International Social Science Council (ISSC). This programme aims to promote research on the fundamental and innovative processes of social transformations needed to secure effective, equitable and durable solutions to some of today’s most urgent problems of global change.

The programme will support researchers to take the lead in developing international Transformative Knowledge Networks.

The first call for seed funding for possibly 30 grants of €30,000 each was made on 31 March 2014; the submission deadline is the 31 May 2014. The second call will be made end of October 2014 when you have the opportunity to apply for full proposals for Transformative Knowledge Networks with possibly 3 grants of €300,000/year over 3 years.

Please have a look at the Transformations to Sustainability programme description for more information.
