IASC is now accepting proposals for consideration for IASC funding in 2024 until 8 January 2024 at 13:00 GMT. The funding is provided by the five IASC Working Groups (WGs) (Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Marine, Social & Human, Terrestrial) and aimed at encouraging and supporting science-led international programmes by offering opportunities for planning and coordination, and by facilitating communication and access to facilities.
Proposals can be submitted for:
- Cross-cutting Projects(relevant for two or more IASC Working Groups); or
- WG-specific Projects(relevant for only one IASC Working Group)
Proposals may include, but are not limited to, projects that contribute to the engagement phase during 2024 of the Fourth International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP IV) process. IASC is coordinating the ICARP IV process (2022-2026) by engaging its partners in Arctic research to enable a community-wide undertaking to discuss the state of Arctic science and the place the Arctic occupies in global affairs and systems, to consider the most urgent knowledge gaps and research priorities for the next decade, and to explore avenues to address these research needs. More information on ICARP IV is available on the ICARP IV website. Detailed information on the call for proposals for each project type, the evaluation criteria used and how to apply is available on the IASC website.
