Call for Proposals of the MeerWissen Initiative
This is the 3rd open Call for Proposals of the MeerWissen Initiative. This call aims at strengthening the knowledge base for marine and coastal Nature-based Solutions in selected African countries by:
  • strengthening the capabilities of African partners in marine research and building knowledge through African-German partnership projects.
  • stimulating the dialogue and knowledge transfer between marine researchers and policy-makers.
  • fostering digital solutions, innovation and the use of new technologies.
This call has been developed as a contribution to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021 – 2030 (‘the Ocean Decade’). Successful projects will be endorsed as Decade Actions and formally recognised as part of the Ocean Decade. MeerWissen supports partnerships of at least one African and one German research or scientific organisation, based on a jointly submitted project proposal. The partnership projects will be funded with up to EUR 360.000. 
The BRICS STI Framework Programme aims to support excellent research on priority areas which can best be addressed through a multinational approach. The initiative should facilitate cooperation among the researchers and institutions in the consortia which consist of partners from at least three of the BRICS countries. The NRF will support interdisciplinary research projects submitted within the 5 BRICS themes, which include an ocean and polar science and technology theme.
