The British Science Association (BSA) has launched its latest funding programme – The Highlands and Islands Climate Change Community Grant

The British Science Association (BSA) has  (18 November 2021) launched its latest funding programme – The Highlands and Islands Climate Change Community Grantwhich will offer grants of up to £4,500 to community groups in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland to work with a researcher to run a project exploring a local climate issue that matters to them.

The Highlands and Islands Climate Change Community Grant scheme, is funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and aims to make a local difference and build momentum from the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26, held in Glasgow.

Community groups – especially those who do not typically engage with science, research and innovation – are invited to apply for funding to support projects based on a new idea or building on existing work by the community that would benefit from partnership with a researcher. The BSA and UKRI are particularly keen to hear from communities about projects that seek to explore ways of adapting to the effects of climate change, for example, extreme weather events or decreased air quality.

Applications will be open until 31 January 2022, and funded projects are expected to run from April to October 2022.
