PICS is now accepting applications under its $1M Theme Partnership Program, which supports research into particularly complex—and critically important—climate mitigation and adaptation challenges.  Here is the media release and the announcement below. Please feel free to share widely through your networks, and contact me with any questions or inquiries about the program. I’d be very happy to meet and share more information and answer any questions you may have.

PICS Theme Partnerships - call now open!

I would like to alert BC researchers, who have the vision and ambition for achieving high-impact climate change solutions, to our flagship Theme Partnership Program. Applications are now open for the $1M Theme Partnership Program which supports research into particularly complex—and critically important—climate mitigation and adaptation challenges.

Theme projects involve interdisciplinary teams of researchers and climate solution decision-makers (from the private and public sector) working together on thematic areas of high complexity and impact – from project outset, to results implementation. These projects generate not only new knowledge, but also build international leadership within British Columbia’s research community, which will help drive further innovation in critical thematic areas. 

We are excited to offer BC-led teams this opportunity to pursue potential game-changers for combatting, and adapting to, climate change, and to be leaders in the emerging low-carbon economy.”  PICS Executive Director, Sybil Seitzinger

Bring your innovation, ideas and ambition to PICS!
