2021 ACU Commonwealth Futures Climate Research cohort: Expressions of interest on Virtual Workshop Delivery
Deadline: March 19, 2021.
The ACU and the British Council have partnered to establish the Commonwealth Climate Research cohort – providing a platform for 24-26 rising-star local researchers to bring multidisciplinary knowledge and expertise to a global stage, build international collaborations, and work with experts to influence issues related to climate and environment in their communities and beyond.
The ACU-British Council partnership is seeking proposals from ACU member universities to deliver three virtual training workshops for the cohort.
The three virtual training workshops are a core component of the programme, and focus on the following topics:
- Research leadership
- Knowledge exchange
- Applicants must be employed by an ACU member university
2. The researchers will be based in regions ranging from the Caribbean to the Pacific. It is imperative that facilitators can ensure all members of the cohort are able to participate fully in the workshops, and take into account diverse time zones when preparing the delivery plan.
Delivering the workshops is great opportunity to raise your profile on an international stage, engage with climate researchers in the run up to COP26, facilitate international collaborations, and support the development and retention of research leaders in the sector.
