RA3 Call for proposals for seed money/pilot projects during 2019

Aim of the call: All projects with a research purpose related to the Bolin Centre RA3 theme of Hydrology, Cryosphere and Climate. Note that this theme includes all aspects of the cryosphere and freshwater hydrology and resource domains, including contaminants and other substances transported by surface and subsurface waters, as long as there is a clear climate relevance.

Potential projects can include, for example, fieldwork, sampling, analyses, equipment, cost related to a research assistant (i.e., costs to hire a student or field assistant for a limited period of time), conferences, workshops or visits of external researchers. Due to the limited amount of money in the call we do not encourage applications for dedicated research staff time. The funds can also go towards co-funding and reinforcing projects funded by other RAs if added value and RA3 relevance can be clearly demonstrated.

Available funding: The total budget of the call is approximately 400,000 SEK. The budget for proposed projects should be for no more than 100,000 SEK.

Eligible applicants: The main applicant should be a member of RA3 and be employed at SU, KTH or SMHI.

Format of proposals: The proposal should fit within maximum of 2 pages and should contain a project background and motivation, a description of relevance for RA3, a project plan, expected output and a budget. No CV:s or publication lists are to be submitted.

Evaluation: Proposals will be evaluated based on (1) scientific quality, (2) relevance to the scope of RA3 and (3) effort to build new collaborations within the Bolin centre. The applications will be evaluated by the RA leaders.
