Event details

UKRI has released a call for research projects as part of its Maximising UK adaptation to climate change programme, co-funded by Defra. The aim of the Maximising UK Adaptation to Climate Change programme is to build capacity, knowledge, and skills that will offer practical and scalable solutions to meet the UK’s challenges in the face of a changing climate and put the UK at the forefront of climate adaptation strategies at both local and national scales.

This call is seeking to fund world leading strategic research projects to help improve the UK’s resilience to climate change impacts. All applications should include NERC remit researchers and at least another research council remit, although wider breadths of expertise are also welcomed as appropriate to the challenge. Projects can apply for up to £2m funding over 2.5 years. The research projects must be transdisciplinary, integrating all relevant disciplines, and closely involving policymakers and other stakeholders in co-design and co-delivery through a systems approach.

Join YESI for a session to bring together York researchers developing ideas for this call to discuss their ideas and identify potential partners. 

Please register via the link - this will send you a calendar invite to accept, along with the zoom details for the session.

If you are developing an idea for this call and cannot attend the session but would like to be connected to other researchers, please complete the form and decline the calendar invite - we will draw on these in discussions and circulate the details of researchers and their interests to all who register.
