Climate Change Initiative launches new research fellowship

Early-career researchers are invited to submit projects proposals to a new fellowship call to implement leading-edge research that contributes to the aim of the Climate Change Initiative (CCI) programme.

Successful research projects will make use of ESA data and Earth Observation assets and be undertaken over a two-year period, starting in January-March 2021. Up to €99000 is available per project which shall be co-funded by a host institution.

Thematic areas of particular interest:-

  • Exploiting Essential Climate Variable (ECV) products from CCI for improved understanding of climate change.
  • Examining cross-ECV consistency and multiple ECV use (those under the CCI Programme in particular)
  • Enhancing interactions between CCI members and other Earth science laboratories, research centres and universities

Projects that address cross-ECV research topics are also welcome.
