Pathways Communication Grant Program

Published By Admin

July 1, 2023

Researchers, including PhD students, who are affiliated with universities and/or research institutions are invited to submit proposals for communication products that aim to disseminate scientific outcomes developed within inter- and/or transdisciplinary place-based research projects on pathways for sustainability, and are addressed to the broader public. 

Scope of Proposals

Proposals must be based on completed outcomes of inter-/transdisciplinary place-based research projects that advance the understanding of at least one of the following three aspects of pathways for sustainability:

  1. How to navigate competing development agendas and claims on resources in order to foster transformative change in complex human-environment systems,
  2. How transformations can be mobilized through processes of knowledge co-production in order to enable expansion of integrated pathways to sustainability in a specific context,
  3. How pathways and processes of transformation, which are highly context specific, interact across locations and scales with other processes of transformation to produce knock-on tensions and/or synergies.

Research outcomes must contribute to the development of pathways for sustainability in practice. They must not be limited to disseminating knowledge on the state of the problem.

The call for proposals is now open for 2023. Two calls are planned per year.

Funding amount for each project in 2023: 2,500 € to 10,000 €

Estimated number of awards per call: 3-10

The total funding available in 2023 is 60,000 €
