Joint MERGE-BECC funding instrument for Short Projects

A series of stimulating discussions among our members at our 2020 joint BECC-MERGE Spring Meeting identified a number of knowledge gaps at the intersection of our Strategic Research Areas (SRAs), the filling of which will require joint activities and a commitment to facilitate these on the part of the SRA Boards. To stimulate the creation of such joint activities a new funding instrument has been developed and BECC and MERGE will from 2021, on a yearly basis, announce short project calls.
