Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research

Funding opportunity for early-career science communicators

 Asia Research News brings you this content provided by our partner. If you are attending the event, please look out for our latest Asia Research News magazine. 

Since its establishment in 1996, APN has been active in strengthening the interface between science and policy to address the challenges of global change and sustainability. As a part of this effort, science communication has been a key recommendation from the science-policy dialogues APN organized in recent years. It is also an important message APN recently brought to the global science-policy forums such as UNFCCC and IPBES, which stressed the importance of using an array of approaches to communicating science because one size does not fit all.

To promote effective communication of scientific findings to policymakers and a wider audience in a variety of real-world contexts, APN is launching this new grant opportunity to support the growth of a new generation of science communicators in the Asia-Pacific region. In parallel with the APN Communication and Outreach Agenda indicated in its Fourth Strategic Plan, APN invites proposals from motivated researchers, journalists, and science writers to develop impactful, creative and policy-oriented publications based on the resources available or referenced on the APN e-Library. It is expected that this grant will enable the further synthesizing, packaging and dissemination of such information for better-informed policy development while fostering a new generation of science communicators in the Asia-Pacific region.
