Funding Call - Book Chapter Contributions from Interdisciplinary Collaborations

Dear all – we at the SSH CENTRE are excited to launch a funding call (for researchers in Europe) that aims to generate policy and governance recommendations for the EU Green Deal, specifically connected to climate, energy and mobility. We are keen to raise the profile of the critical social sciences in European Commission circles, and thus would encourage those from STS communities to submit applications. Indeed, STS is obviously well-positioned to establish links to the natural/technical sciences, which the call also asks for. All best wishes.

Funding Call - Book Chapter Contributions from Interdisciplinary Collaborations

Call headlines

The SSH CENTRE is funding 30 new interdisciplinary collaborative teams up to €7,500 to develop a single policy or governance recommendation related to the EU Green Deal’s commitments on climate, energy or mobility. Deadline for applications is 4 June 2023.

The recommendation developed by each collaborative team will be published as a short chapter in an open access book (focusing on climate, energy or mobility) AND will be submitted to the European Commission's Directorate-General for Research and Innovation.

What activities can be funded?

There is intentional flexibility in the collaborative work that can be funded - from literature reviews to stakeholder workshops, visiting fellowships to participatory evaluations, etc. The only requirements are that: (1) the activities span SSH and STEM; and (2) the recommendation moves beyond simply highlighting failures.

As well as funding the interdisciplinary collaborative work, the SSH CENTRE is also hosting a virtual symposium on Tuesday 10th October 2023, where representatives from the 30 collaborative teams will have the opportunity to share initial thoughts and receive support in writing their chapter.

Who is eligible?

Funding is available to collaborative teams composed of at least 4 researchers based at institutions within the EU or a Horizon-associated country (including the UK), with a minimum of 2 SSH researchers and 2 STEM researchers.

Who are the book editors?

Colleagues are welcome to reach out to each editorial team, should they have any queries:

  • Ester Galande Sanchez, Alevgul Sorman, Violeta Cabello (Basque Centre for Climate Change), Sara Heidenreich, Christian Klöckner (Norwegian University of Science & Technology)
