Capacity Building Call for Early Career Mountain Researchers in IPCC processes

Simon Allen

Dear Colleagues

Recognizing the need to support and build capacities in regional and global assessment for science-policy processes, the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI), the University of Zurich, Helvetas, and ICIMOD – in an initiative supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) – have teamed up to launch a call for applications for a mentoring and training program for early career mountain researchers who have an interest in participating in IPCC processes. The objective is to train and mentor a select cohort of up to six early to mid-career researchers from developing countries with a background in mountain research in order to strengthen their potential contribution to IPCC assessment processes.

The mentoring and training program entails a series of activities and events over the course of two years, starting in September 2019.

Full program details and the application form can be found here:

Applications must be received by midnight CET on 12 May 2019.

Best regards on behalf of the contributing institutions,

Simon Allen
