The French government has chosen 12 additional researchers from overseas to lead climate science projects as part of its Make Our Planet Great Again scheme.
The winners in the third phase of the scheme, who were announced by the government on 14 March, will lead projects in France for the next three to five years. Their work will be funded by grants of between €500,000 and €750,000 from the PIA investment scheme, which will be match-funded by their host institutions.
Eight of the winning researchers are from elsewhere in Europe (of which three are from the UK and three from Germany), three are from North America and one is from Asia. Their winning projects range from a study of the financial risks associated with climate change to work on the deoxygenation of the Tropical Atlantic.
