Call for proposals: Future Research Leaders Forum on 'Societal Transformation in the face of Climate Change: Promising Research Directions'

A workshop for junior researchers active on the interface of social sciences/humanities and climate change research.

Invited contributions

Short position papers on innovations in SSH climate research

 structured along overall 2-4 propositions (position statements = one sentence) on innovations in social science climate research in terms of important research principles and research themes/questions with

 an introduction section containing a brief critical reflection on existing knowledge gaps in research and

 a concluding section, where promising ideas for innovative research policies and suitable funding activities might be proposed,

 accompanied by a list of max. 15 literature references (e.g. links to currently important research streams in social sciences/humanities, literature references to emerging research fields - if existing); and

 with a maximum length of 8,000 characters (without references).

Successful applicants will be informed about further details of their requested workshop inputs.


General eligibility and selection of candidates

Eligible candidates will be junior researchers with minimum 3 years but no more than 10 years of research experience (PhD students, Post Docs or individuals with equivalent qualifications) with interest in the research field of 'Societal Transformations in the Face of Climate Change' and with particular research focus on

 the interface SSH and Climate Change Research and/or

 the interface of Natural Sciences and SSH in the field of Climate Change Research.

Candidates will be selected based on the excellence of their research profile, position papers and innovativeness of developed ideas and arguments as well as balance and diversity of the group of Future Research Leaders.


Aims and scope of the workshop

The workshop brings together selected junior researchers that are active on the interface of social sciences and humanities (SSH) and climate change research and who - as Future Research Leaders - are considered to shape SSH transformation research. The workshop aims to achieve the following objectives:

 to define research priorities at the interface of SSH and climate change research, including views of researchers working on the interface of natural sciences and SSH;

 to identify innovative and promising research directions, including ideas and approaches, and

 to facilitate networking and community building among the research leaders of tomorrow.
