Call for project proposals: Young researchers and digital solutions for climate change

Explore projects are small agile research and innovation projects with the purpose to quickly screen new ideas within or between the core thematic topics of DIREC – possibly in relation to specific challenges of companies or society. Explore projects run for 3-12 months with a focus on identifying and creating new research challenges and areas.

Projects can be stand-alone projects or part of a sequential evolution of projects. For example, an Explore project may be a natural start to investigate into a new field or topic, which can lead to the creation of a larger research project.

DIREC is launching two special calls for Explore project proposals:

  • DIREC Climate Explore projects supports researchers wanting to explore how digital technology can help address some of the challenges related to climate changes. We are especially looking for ideas where digital technology has a centre role in the potential solution or where the research might make a significant impact
  • DIREC Starter Explore projects are targeted at researchers in the beginning of their carrier (up to 7 years after defending their PhD) and who have an idea for an excellent project within one or more of the workstreams of DIREC.

Each Explore project may be supported with up to DKK 300-500.000 including overhead for a period of up to a year.

We expect to start up to 10 explore projects during this round. 

Deadline for applying is November 5th, 2021.

Looking forward to seeing your proposals.
