BECC Call for Research Funding 2018-2020

j

BECC welcomes proposals for research funding within the vision and aims of BECC for the years 2018-20. This is a joint call, up to 20 million SEK, between LU and UGOT and aims at a continued consolidation of the collaboration between research groups and major projects within and between Lund and Gothenburg universities.

BECC strives to assess the impacts of climate change on terrestrial biodiversity and ecosystem services, and to generate knowledge as a basis for informed societal responses to those impacts. BECC research encompasses forestry, agriculture and subarctic ecosystems, but also how nutrient export from forestry and agricultural land affects aquatic systems. The focus is on Swedish conditions, taking into account relevant aspects of the regional (e.g. European) and global context. Studies of other climatic, societal or regional contexts may also be relevant, if they generate knowledge of well-motivated relevance to the evidence-based management of Swedish ecosystems, or to the fulfilment of Sweden's international commitments in related policy areas.

Proposals are invited for research relevant to achieving the vision and aims of BECC and its Challenge Themes

How much can be applied for?

Total budget for potential allocation under this call is up to 16 million SEK (including OH) for Lund University and up to 4 million SEK (including OH) for University of Gothenburg.

Minimum sum for each application is 800 000 SEK in total between Lund and Gothenburg

Time plan

Decisions about the proposed research projects is expected to be taken during November 2017.
