19th January 2022

Highlands & Islands groups can apply for £4.5K by 31st January to explore climate change with researchers.

How could you explore climate change in your community in the Highlands and Islands through connecting with a researcher?

Introducing a new small grant of up to £4500 for Highlands and Islands groups to build partnerships with researchers and make a difference in your local community.

This grant is funded by UKRI and delivered by the British Science Association (BSA) with local support from Science Ceilidh and RSE for projects adapting and responding to local climate change issues collaboratively with researchers to be delivered in April 2022 to October 2022.

You do not need to have a connection with a researcher already but will be asked to think of potential ways you could work together and learn from each other through the project. We will then help match you to an appropriate researcher and provide support through the project if you are selected through the independent panel.

Applications from groups who have not worked on climate change and/or with researchers before are welcomed and support will be provided throughout the process. We are also keen to hear from groups who are traditionally underrepresented in science, research and innovation (including through geography, socio-economic background or protected characteristics including disability and ethnicity) and young people.

We held a webinar exploring how you could work with a researcher together, what types of projects are eligible and the application process and questions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NH-N-zdWfT4.

The deadline for the grant is 31st January 5pm, and funded projects will be notified in February, matched in March for delivery beginning in April until October 2022.

Researchers working on climate change are also welcome to register their interest to find out more and potentially be matched with communities later in the process:
