Managing the Environment to Improve Human Health and Wellbeing
A new funding call, Managing the Environment to Improve Human Health and Wellbeing, will soon be opened.
The call will focus on three main themes:
- natural hazards and extreme events
- the exposure of people to vector-borne diseases and marine toxins
- health improvements associated with urban ecosystems.
The funders (NERC, AHRC and ESRC) are hoping to release up to £4m funding for this call. It will provide an opportunity for interdisciplinary research collaborations that increase our understanding of the role biodiversity and ecosystem processes play in human health and wellbeing.
Please see the NERC website for the pre-announcement.
Event - 14 July
The Valuing Nature Programme Coordination Team are running an event in support of the call.
This will be your chance to:
- Hear about the funding call, including expert opinion on the challenges of interdisciplinary working in this areas
- Put questions direct to funders in a Q&A session
- Be a part of the developing Valuing Nature Network
- Find partners for the call from other discipline areas or potential end-users of research.
If you would like to attend this event please apply here. Because the number of places are limited we may need to restrict the number of people attending from any one institution.
