UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is inviting proposals to their third funding opportunity through the UK Climate Resilience programme, funded through the Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF) Wave 1.
The UK Climate Resilience programme is a £18.6 million collaboration between UKRI and the Met Office which aims to draw together fragmented climate research and expertise and deliver robust, multi- and inter-disciplinary climate risk and adaptation research to ensuring the UK is resilient to climate variability and change and powerfully positioned to exploit the opportunities of adaptation and green growth.
Funding of up to £1 million is available to support research proposals of up to 24 months in duration. At least three proposals will be funded up to the value of £330,000 (at 80% FEC) each. Applications are anticipated to be led by arts and humanities colleagues but to include researchers from the natural, physical, engineering, health, and social sciences where appropriate.
We anticipate the funded projects will raise awareness of what it means to work with uncertainty to build climate resilience in the real world and deliver useful knowledge (narratives, learning histories, case studies, film and other material) to further inform practices and behaviours that build confidence in practical approaches to living with uncertainty and community and environmental resilience building.
