Help to fill knowledge gaps in climate and biodiversity science: Future Earth is conducting a horizon scanning on the knowledge gaps in climate change and biodiversity sciences to inform the development of Horizon Europe’s 2025-2027 work programme and beyond. This horizon-scanning project will result in an independent expert report, published in early 2024 by the European Commission, and is intended to inform decision-makers both in Europe and globally. Future Earth is a global network of scientists, researchers, and innovators collaborating for a more sustainable planet. Their mission is to advance research in support of transformations to global sustainability.

Horizon Europe is the European Union’s key funding program for research and innovation, and with a budget of €95.5 billion, it is the largest research funding program in the world. Building off of the process of the 10 New Insights in Climate Science report, Future Earth is seeking the input of active researchers, across all disciplines, working with issues related to climate change and biodiversity sciences. Relevant topics span a very broad scholarship on the underlying dynamics and impacts of climate change, biodiversity, nature-based solutions, earth observations, and other related sustainability science areas. They are particularly interested in research adopting a systems perspective and crucial in reaching the targets set out by the Paris Agreement, the Kunming-Montreal Biodiversity Framework, and UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Application Deadline: 12 June 2023.
