2006 ICSU Grants

The ICSU Grants Program supports collaborative scientific initiatives of relevance to science and society. It is a competitive, peer-reviewed program for ICSU Scientific Unions and Interdisciplinary Bodies. Proposals for 2006 grants must focus on one of the priority areas; these are:

  • Science and Technology for Sustainable Development
  • Capacity Building and Science Education
  • Science/Policy Interface
  • Dissemination of Data and /or Information from Science and Technology
  • Emerging Science -- Creation of New Knowledge

Project should be international and multi-disciplinary. Proposals directly related to follow-up action of the UNESCO/ICSU World Conference on Science and the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) will be particularly welcome. Projects that promote the involvement of young scientists, women, and scientists from developing countries are encouraged. For 2006, the funding available imposes a ceiling of USD 50000 for all applications.

As a potential lead applicant, IUPAC may submit no more than two proposals. Individuals interested in submitting a project should contact the relevant officers (Division Presidents or Standing Committee Chairmen) and the Secretariat as soon as possible. Fully completed applications, endorsed by a Division or Standing Committee, should be submitted to the Secretariat no later than 15 January 2005. This timeline will allow for an internal evaluation and selection, prior to final submission to ICSU by 1 March 2005.

For more details, including ICSU statement and schedule and form template, please contact <secretariat@iupac.org>.
