Conéctate A+ 2022 Small Grants and Conference Grants

SUDAC Conéctate A+ is launching a small grants call for collaborative research and a call for conference grants to encourage the research community to address pressing knowledge needs in science, policy, practice, and society. The calls focus on the areas of climate change, ecosystems, and health in the Tropical Andes and Central America region within the framework of sustainable development. Submission deadline: 14 October 2022.

Conectate A+

Conéctate A+ is launching two funding calls:

  1. Small Grants for Collaborative Research: Awarding of up to 10'000 CHF for collaborative research, synthesis activities that generate outputs such as publications and kick-start integrative research initiatives, and projects focused on teaching, training, and capacity development across the thematic areas of focus of this call.
  2. Conference Grants Supporting Participation in Conferences: Awarding up to 1'000 CHF to support researchers, especially targeting early career researchers (ECRs), who are themselves Conéctate A+ members or have a primary affiliation in a Conéctate A+ member institution. The funding can be used to support travel and registration costs associated with attending in-person scientific conferences. Presentations and conferences need to be thematically linked to climate change, ecosystems and health in the Tropical Andes and Central America region.

Application deadline for both calls is 14 October 2022.
