Grant Description
Grants to USA, Canada, and International consortia of investigators for research addressing climate change. The purpose of the grant is to facilitate joint, multi-national investigations that will generate policy change globally. Funding is intended to support excellent, collaborative, transnational, transdisciplinary, innovative, fundamental, or applied research projects focused on cultural heritage and climate change in order to contribute to knowledge advances and policy change at the global level.

The Belmont Forum and the Joint Programming Initiatives Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe (JPI Climate) and Cultural Heritage and Global Change (JPI CH) are pleased to announce the launch of a Collaborative Research Action (CRA) on the theme Climate and Cultural Heritage – Collaborative research to address urgent challenges.

This Call aims to support transdisciplinary and convergent research approaches on cultural heritage and climate change, to foster collaboration among the research community across several regions, and to contribute to knowledge advances and policy change at the global level. Applicants are invited to submit research proposals that address at least one of the three call themes:

  1. The Impact of Climate Change on Cultural Heritage;
  2. Cultural Heritage as a Resource for Climate Mitigation and Adaptation;
  3. Sustainable Solutions for Heritage.

For additional information regarding these themes, see:

Please read the Eligibility Requirements for each Funding Organization, on the Full Grant Text RFP link, to know what costs are eligible for funding.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
- Proposals must be submitted by a Consortium of minimum three Principal Investigators (PIs) from three different countries, which also involves at least one Societal Partner (SP).
- LPIs and PIs must request funding from a Funding Organization, on behalf of their host institutions, and cannot participate in a self-funded or in-kind capacity. Please note that a researcher may be involved in a maximum of two proposals as PI (except for research applicants based in Lithuania who can only be involved in one proposal as PI or other primary project implementer) and cannot be involved in more than one proposal as LPI.
- Additional consortium members may participate in a self-funded capacity if the minimum requirement of participants from three countries requesting funding from three Funding Organizations is met. They can join the Consortium as Associate Principal Investigators (API) or Societal Partners (SP), depending on their expected roles in the project.
- Consortia must be transnational and transdisciplinary.
