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.

'We need to manage a major transition or it will manage us. The insights of Social Sciences and Humanities are essential to informing a positive transformation in the face of climate change' - Frank McGovern, Joint Programme Initiative Climate Chair.

Transformational change requires innovative approaches and novel interdisciplinary collaboration. SOLSTICE encourages the inclusion of those who are not traditional participants in climate change research, as well as outreach to non-scientific societal actors. Building on emerging trends of research, SOLSTICE want your proposal to address one or more of the following topics:

  • Social justice and participation
  • Sense making, cultural meaning and risk perception
  • Transformative finance and economy

The SOLSTICE submission platform is ready for you to create your account and start building your proposal. Proposals will be accepted until 3 February 2020. The Project Outline section of your submission must be completed by 9 January 2020.

To learn more about the call and the full scope of topics, please read the guidelines for applicants.

Find out more and submit your proposal.

SOLSTICE was launched by the Joint Programming Initiative 'Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe' (JPI Climate), a pan-European intergovernmental initiative gathering European countries to jointly coordinate climate research and fund new transnational research initiatives that provide useful climate knowledge and services for post-COP21 Climate Action.
