The theme selected echoes the many challenges that the society as a whole is facing at the moment. With several successive global crises, may it be in terms of health, climate, biodiversity, economy and many others, inclusive solutions are needed more than ever.


To help build this crucial path towards resilience, special attention will be given to projects that foster the dialogue between science and society and/or politics. The funding scheme is open to all academic disciplines. The proposals can be focused on a single discipline or be of interdisciplinary character.


They may, for example, tackle the following questions (non-exhaustive list):

  • How to engage society in finding solutions for tackling the challenges facing us?
  • How can science be better utilized to make societies more resilient?
  • How does science impact society and politics (and vice-versa)?
