Funding Opportunities

GEO and Google Earth Engine are inviting project proposal submissions for the GEO-Google Earth Engine programme, which aims to help tackle the world’s biggest sustainable development challenges by granting eligible projects cost-free use of the Google Earth Engine (GEE) platform. Application deadline is 15 March 2020.

Access to data is essential in order to understand and solve global problems such as climate change. It is with this in mind that GEO and Google have partnered to launch the GEO-Google Earth Engine programme, providing eligible applicants with access to the Google Earth Engine (GEE) platform to help bridge the gap between science and application, producing tangible products that engage with end-users and decision-makers.

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) welcomes applications for EGU Public Engagement Grants, which aim to celebrate and recognise excellent science communication in the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The grants, an initiative of the EGU Outreach Committee, are awarded to EGU members interested in developing an outreach project to raise awareness of geosciences outside the scientific community.

Three applicants who are judged to have proposed the most innovative and effective project will each be awarded a grant of €1500 to help further develop the idea and put it into practice. They will also receive a free registration to the EGU 2021 General Assembly, where they will have the opportunity to present their winning projects.

The deadline for applications is 15 February 2020.

SOLSTICE is a joint transnational call for proposals that invites the social sciences and humanities to submit proposals that address the societal impact of climate change.

SOLSTICE consists of 10 European countries who have partnered to offer funding opportunities for innovative proposals from social sciences and humanities communities that can inform or even trigger change.

The call closes 3 February 2020.
