The SSH CENTRE is funding 30 new interdisciplinary collaborative teams up to 7,500 to develop a single policy or governance recommendation related to the EU Green Deal’s commitments on climate, energy or mobility. Deadline for applications is 4 June 2023.

The recommendation developed by each collaborative team will be published as a short chapter in an open access book (focusing on climate, energy or mobility) AND will be submitted to the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation
