Joint International call:full bids results

Joint International funding AO: Successful full bids

Funding decisions for the Joint International funding AO are now complete. Out of fifteen outline bids invited to proceed to full bids, five were selected for full or partial funding.

One of the criteria for this International programme was "building on or complementing existing work in rapid climate change" and these studies will be expected to do so explicitly. A list of successful bids can be found below.
