Against the backdrop of successive global crises (health, climate, biodiversity, polarization of societies, economic, rise of autocratic states, etc) and the race to overcome them, UNIGE and UZH call for proposals for joint projects in research and teaching on the theme. This call is relevant for the Citizen Science community at the University of Zurich and those working with colleagues at the University of Geneva.
The funding scheme is open to all academic disciplines. The proposals can be either focused on one discipline or be of interdisciplinary character. Potential research questions and focus may evolve around the following questions, among others:
- 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)?
The call for proposals closes on 9 January 2022.
