The ERA-NET on Transformations to Sustainability (T2S) has published a call with deadline 5 April 2017.
Deadline: 5 April 2017
Short Call Abstract:
The Belmont Forum and NORFACE launch the Programme ”Transformations to Sustainability” (acronym: T2S). T2S will contribute to re-structuring the broad field of sustainability research by placing social science and humanities at the heart of interdisciplinary research in a step change in scale and scope for research programming on this topic.
Co-production of knowledge and research problem formulation is considered to be critical to the process of societal transformation. Researchers from social sciences/humanities (SSH) can apply to T2S on behalf of a consortium.
The programme is structured around three themes, every research project should focus on at least one of these themes:
1. Governance and institutional dimensions of transformations to sustainability
2. Economy and finance of transformations to sustainability
3. Well-being, quality of life, identity, and social and cultural values in relation to transformations to sustainability
Economy and finance of transformations to sustainability; well-being, quality of life, identity, and social and cultural values in relation to transformations to sustainability.
Specific participation requirements:
A project team must involve at least three national research teams, eligible for the funding from three different T2S funders; researchers from at least two eligible European funders and one non-European funder should be involved in a consortium.
Inclusion of stakeholder or community-based partners is encouraged.
National teams are subject to budget limitations set by their national funding agency/agencies.
Researchers in non-European countries (Brazil, Chinese Taipei, Japan, USA) may be consortium leaders.
Each consortium should be led by a social scientist and should also include researchers from other disciplines including e.g. natural sciences and technical sciences insofar as it is relevant for the research questions and the researchers are eligible for funding according to national eligibility requirements.
Each proposal can request up to 1.5m euros for a maximum project duration of three years.
Applicants (regardless of country base) may participate in no more than two proposals and in only one proposal as Main Applicant.
Each submitted proposal will go through a two-stage (Outline Proposal and Final Proposal) evaluation process.
All submissions must be made online via the Belmont Forum online proposal portal (BFGO).
