The Belmont Forum invites proposals for a second Collaborative Research Action (CRA) focused on the Arctic region. The theme of this CRA is Resilience in a Rapidly Changing Arctic.

This joint Belmont Forum CRA calls for co-developed and co-implemented proposals from integrated teams of natural and social scientists, and stakeholders to address key areas of Arctic resilience understanding and action. This collaboration of academic and non-academic knowledge systems constitutes a transdisciplinary approach that will advance will understanding of the fundamentals of Arctic resilience and spur action, inform decision-making, and translate into solutions for resilience.
