Roads to funding
PIE presents an overview of funding sources for education and research programmes with Southern partners.
This call addresses interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research with the aim of finding context-specific solutions that work or have the potential to work in particular settings, in order to draw generalised lessons for settings elsewhere. Taking into account all the competing demands, the solutions should focus on sustainable landscape use that combines a range of functions and demands. This will require a multi‐level (i.e. field/farm; landscape; national level) and multi‐ and transdisciplinary approach in order to arrive at such comprehensive solutions. Part of the project should be an in‐depth case study analysis that results in the development of transferable lessons.
Within the Merian Fund, coherent interdisciplinary programmes are developed together with the partner countries. Research projects in these programmes jointly contribute to solutions as well as realising the SDGs. The coherency between projects generates synergy and counteracts the fragmented deployment of resources.
