NSERC to collaborate with SSHRC and CIHR on new interdisciplinary Knowledge Synthesis Grant competition: Living Within the Earth’s Carrying Capacity

Adapting to live within the Earth’s carrying capacity is one of humanity’s most important challenges. Research is needed to explore changes in global ecosystems, to evaluate mitigation and adaptation measures, and to examine shifting values and cultures. To that end, NSERC is collaborating on the next Knowledge Synthesis Grants call with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).

Knowledge Synthesis Grants support the synthesis of existing research knowledge and the identification of knowledge gaps to inform the development of tools, policies and practices required for a sustainable future, and to identify roles that different sectors and stakeholders can play.

Knowledge Synthesis Grants are valued at $50,000 for one year and up to 20 grants may be awarded. The submission deadline is January 7, 2020. See the This link will take you to another Web site funding opportunity description for more detail.
