Answers to global challenges such as migration require the knowledge and cooperation of researchers from all over the world. This is why the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) is a partner in the “Integrated Approaches to Human Migration/Mobility in an Era of Rapid Global Change” funding initiative of the Belmont Forum.

In this collaborative research networking call, applicants should focus on illuminating the determinants of migration—why people move, do not move, from and to where and when, and on what time scale, in relation to Global Change processes like environmental and climate change, demographic changes, consumption patterns, energy use, and land-use. Exploration of dependencies, linkages, and/or impacts between Global Change, migration and mobility, human constructs, social science, and humanities approaches, and other studies are encouraged.

Together with the Pre-Announcement, the Expression of Interest form is now open on the CRA Belmont Forum website. Preferential access to the workshops and networking opportunities will be given to those that fill out the Expression of Interest form by 1 February 2022.

Founded in Australia in 2009, the Belmont Forum is a group of funding agencies from around the world that support transdisciplinary, globally-representative research groups, and coproduction/participatory methods to address various Global Environmental Change topics.
