Memorial Deadline: No RGCS review required

External Deadline: Tuesday 15th, February 2022


MEOPAR students, researchers and highly qualified personnel (HQP) are invited to apply for funding to organize and host training workshops related to the Response Core mandate. In the context of MEOPAR, “response” refers to the development of solutions to address the likelihood and/or consequences of marine-related hazards.

All training activities should align with the Response Core’s focus of assessing and addressing coastal community vulnerability and should deliver engagement and training workshops. Preference will be given to training activities that engage audiences beyond the academic community in creative and purposeful ways.

Please note the following Network outcomes should be considered:

  • * Expansion of MEOPAR’s expert base and research capacity in the social sciences, law, policy, planning;
  • * Facilitation of stakeholder engagement in order to mobilize the use of knowledge to reduce coastal and marine-related risks and develop effective solutions;
  • * Strengthen the integration of social science and natural science research within MEOPAR;
  • * Support MEOPAR project teams seeking to conduct training related to Response research

Additional information can be found here.

The RCT fund is open for applications on a rolling basis until funds are fully disbursed. All training activities must be completed, and expenses incurred, before March 31, 2022.
