Climate Innovation Insights: Sustainable Production Systems

Climate-KIC is tasked with sharing knowledge with and beyond its partnership on the successes and failures of stimulating game-changing innovation to tackle climate change.
We are therefore inviting partners to contribute papers to a new series called "Climate Innovation Insights" which not only demonstrates and highlights a particularly good project, policy, business or measurement framework, but also shares the learning process of the experience and the lessons resulting from it which can help others to engage in the climate innovation landscape. "Insights" will be a mix of case studies of recent innovation experiences and analytical pieces, evidence based and quality-assured making them suitable  for dessemination to a broad international audience. A budget of up to € 6000 will be offered for creating one Innovation Insight.

You can read more about the requirements and process for the call in the paper at this link:
Sustainable Production Systems: Open Call for Climate Innovation Insights
Note that the deadline for submitting an expression of interest for this call is 28 October. 

White paper and online platform contributions: Sustainable Land Use

The Sustainable Land Use theme has identified Forestry as an area of strategic importance for climate related innovation. Forests play a key role in absorbing carbon.and the potential to increase capacity through partnership based innovation is significant. A prerequisite will be to look at forestry in an integrated and holistic way.
The SLU theme intends to produce a White paper to support the Development and delivery of a Forestry programme over the next 5 years and beyond, building on the results of Climate-KIC Projects and the knowledge of experts within our community. This call is for both written contributions and editorial capacity to intergrate these in the White paper. A budget of up to € 8000 will be offered per contribution,dependent on the partner estimation of the time requirement.

You can read more about the priority areas and associated challenges/barriers for the White paper and the process involved at this link:
Sustainable Land Use: Open Call for a White Paper on Forestry
Deadline for expressing interest:for this call is 31 October. 

Please be aware that the work needs to be delivered this year for both of these calls ie.the budget must be spent in 2016 and no additional budget will be awarded for 2017 unless an additional call for papers is made in 2017.
