In November 2021, the UK will be hosting the 26th annual session of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention, or “COP26”, in Glasgow. At the summit, delegates including heads of state, climate experts, and negotiators will come together to agree on coordinated action to tackle climate change.
In leading up to COP26, the British Council has launched the Trilateral Research Initiative to provide an opportunity to
- Establish new research networks and collaborations in the field of climate research between the UK, Japan, and one or more ASEAN countries or territories which are eligible for Overseas Development Assistance (ODA);
- Develop and implement research projects which contribute to solving the existing climate change-related problems;
- Stimulate innovative research ideas and encourage sustainable collaborations between the research partners beyond the initial funding;
- Foster an interdisciplinary approach to climate research by bringing together early career researchers from different fields to collaborate on finding solutions to climate challenges.
Deadline: Open until Sun 29 Jan 2021, 17.00 hrs UK time.
