About the ICSU Grants Programme
The ICSU Grants Programme supports collaborative scientific initiatives of relevance to science and society through seed funds that are often used to lever funds from other sources. It is a competitive, peer-reviewed programme for ICSU Scientific Unions, Interdisciplinary Bodies, and Joint Initiatives in collaboration with other ICSU bodies including Regional Offices.
Since 2008, the programme has offered up to ten awards of 30 000 euros. The programme seeks proposals that:
- focus on the themes of the ICSU Strategic Plan 2012-2017 and are international and multi-disciplinary.
- involve scientists across disciplines and national borders.
- promote the involvement of young scientists, women, and scientists from developing countries.
- address the strategic priorities of the ICSU Regional Offices.
