Velux Stiftung: Forestry call for proposals

This call for proposals in forestry is focused on developing or integrating solutions for adapting to or mitigating climate change, promoting biodiversity, providing resilient ecosystems services while supplying sustainable forest products. The funders are also seeking proposals that incentivize action and behavioral change, transforming the theoretical and abstract values of forest products and services. The call also promotes research collaborations with LMICs.

Velux Forestry Call 2023

Your proposal can be for an implementation-oriented research project that includes stakeholder engagement and has a high potential to foster change in practice. Alternatively, your proposal can be for a science practice network that co-develop or implement approaches that contribute towards the goals of the program. Support is available for projects within existing science-practice networks or establishing a new one.

Projects may last from 1 to 4 years, and funding of up to CHF 100,000 per year is available, with at least 10% to be used for knowledge transfer. Projects with several partners are possible.

The deadline for proposals is 23 September 2023, with a final decision expected in March 2024.
