The Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS) has announced an exciting opportunity for research teams to gain support and funding through their Opportunity Projects Program (OPP).

Targeting new entrants and emerging leaders, this opportunity encourages researchers to take bold, but calculated, risks in pursuit of high-impact climate solution results. Successful projects are awarded up to $180,000 over a maximum three-year duration, and three to five awards are made per call.

Although not a requirement, in this call PICS is also asking researchers to consider if their climate solutions proposals will be impacted by, or can contribute to, post-COVID-19 recovery efforts in areas such as the future economy, public health, and urban planning.

Applications close on August 4, 2020. For more information, see PICS’ Guide for OPP Applicants.
