Announcement of Opportunity: Landscape Decisions Fellowships

UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) invite proposals to this call on the Strategic Priorities Fund programme on ‘Landscape Decisions: Towards a new framework for using land assets’. This is a four-year multidisciplinary programme jointly delivered by NERC, the Arts & Humanities Research Council, the Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council, the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council and the Economic & Social Research Council on behalf of UKRI.

Fellowship proposals to this call could address a number of challenges. Examples may include, but are not limited to, the following (in no particular order):

  • How to ensure landscape decisions are climate-resilient;
  • How landscape decisions can support the UK’s 2050 net zero emissions target;
  • The role of mathematics, big data and artificial intelligence within landscape decision making;
  • How decisions on multifunctional landscapes can be taken under uncertainty to improve environmental land management;
  • The engagement of diverse social and institutional groups with landscape decision making;
  • The role of individual emotions and values, and/or finance in landscape decision making.
  • How to ensure landscape decisions take account of local/regional place-based factors including those of a socio-political and economic nature.

Three types of Fellowship are available:

  • Research Synthesis Fellowships.
  • Research Translation Fellowships.
  • Community Engagement Research Fellowships.

Funds of up to £1 million are available for this call. Fellowships can be full or part-time and applications are open to people at any career stage.

Closing date for proposals: 16:00 on 26 March 2020
