Call for Proposals – Mistra Arctic Sustainable Development

Mistra invites Swedish research groups to submit programme proposals on the theme of sustainable development in the Arctic Regions. The purpose of the programme is twofold: to expand knowledge of the region’s distinctive prospects of long-term sustainable development, and to contribute to adequate and effective application of research results in policy processes relating to development in the Arctic.

In this interdisciplinary programme, the primary emphasis will be on social sciences and humanities. Research should have a bearing on Sweden, while integrating global and circumpolar perspectives to a high degree. For the whole programme, which is to last four years, Mistra will provide funds of up to SEK 30 million. Counterfunding amounting to at least 25% of Mistra’s contribution is required.

The new programme will build further on experience from the project-based ‘Mistra Arctic Futures in a Global Context’ programme (2011–13), but is being announced as a freestanding initiative.
