Joint UK-Canada call offers rare opportunity to work with Inuit communities hit by climate change
- Co-creation is a watchword for this scheme; applicants must be open to being led by Inuit partners where appropriate.
- Impact—on Inuit communities and UK-Canadian understanding of environmental change—will be a key assessment criterion.
- Applicants should demonstrate an openness to working with new partners.
- Make sure the project is integrated rather than a series of stand-alone sections.
The Understanding Environmental Change in Inuit Nunangat is a unique call launched by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Canada’s Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, Polar Knowledge Canada, National Research Council of Canada, Parks Canada and the Fonds de Recherche du Quebec.
