As a MERGE researcher you can receive help and support for activities that strengthen the environment and research. It can be funding or practical support with arranging events, writing a policy or science brief, stakeholder contacts etc.
The allocation of MERGE resources is based on an annual budget decided by the board. Some specific decisions are taken by the board, in other cases the board allocates resources to a specific task for later decision.
Topics that will be given priority
On MERGE annual meeting 2021 we defined emerging research topics that will be given more priority. Please take them into consideration when applying for funds:
- Fires and troposphere/stratosphere
- Climate change and air quality, air pollution
- Aerosols and ice nucleation with close collaboration with model development
- Analysis on large datasets
- Uncertainties BVOC - SOA
- Hybrid modelling
- Data assimilation
- Isotope component of the hydrological cycle
Please consider gender and interdisciplinary aspects, stakeholder interactions and the connection between the different MERGE partners when submitting proposals for different activities.
