The third and final round of the Place-Based Climate Action Network Fund will be launched on 1 September 2021.
The Place-Based Climate Action Network (PCAN) Fund is an integral part of the Place-Based Climate Action Network. The aim of the PCAN Fund is to support projects that promote and increase understanding of place-based climate action in the UK. The fund provides small grants for both research and the development of policy and practice.
The third and final round of the fund will be launched on 1 September 2021.
Proposals may be submitted for a one-year PCAN Fellowship (early career researchers) or the project call. The call is for projects that address the following issues (other innovative proposals on place-based climate action in the UK will also be considered):
- Evaluating the impact of climate commissions
- Delivering climate action at the local level
- Exploring the co-benefits of climate action
- Place-based climate action in rural areas
Projects can start in or before spring 2022 and must be completed by November 2023.
Applications are invited from both practitioners (policy makers, businesses, NGOs, etc) and academic researchers. PCAN particularly encourage applications that are co-produced by researchers and research users.
The fund is open to the UK research and climate change community, including members of the PCAN network (but not core members of the PCAN team).
The call will open to applications on 1 September 2021. The deadline for applications is scheduled to be the 28 September 2021.
