Info on research grants by the Global Challenges Foundation

The Global Challenges Foundation (GCF) is offering 10 grants of €10 000 for research overviews on global catastrophic risks and the gap in the global governance of these risks. GCF is an organization based in Stockholm, Sweden that was created in 2012 to facilitate the necessary changes to the global governance system in order to mitigate global catastrophic risks.

For this particular research call, we welcome applications focusing on either or both of the following broad topics:

  • Drivers of global catastrophic risks

  • The global governance gap

The results of the research are intended to provide background for the definition of the GCF’s priorities and build a foundation for future, more extensive, calls for research and innovation, and may be published as a part of a new series of themed research reports. Authors may also be invited to present their results at events organized or co-hosted by the GCF.

If this opportunity would be appropriate for your network at the International Affairs Program at the New School, we would appreciate information being shared. You can read more about the research grants and apply here. Likewise, get in touch if you have any questions. The deadline for application is June 6, 2019.
