Ecological connectivity to maximise biodiversity conservation between marine protected areas in the Southwest Indian Ocean - SIOMPA 2023
The Southwest Indian Ocean (SWIO) basin is a globally recognized hotspot of endemism and biodiversity. It is home to many spatially fragmented Marine Protected Areas (MPA), which are essential in maintaining marine ecosystems. A crucial element, which requires further investigation, is the ecological connectivity, often highlighted in the design of MPAs and the guarantees of conservation success.
Second edition of the transnational call for projects of the European Partnership Driving Urban Transitions with a focus on urban areas
Coming from the Horizon Europe Partnership scheme and related to the JPI Urban Europe, the European Driving Urban Transitions Partnership gather a massive community: 27 countries and more than 60 partners to support the European innovation ecosystem in the urban area. The aim of the DUT Joint Call 2023, whom first stage will open on September 1st and will close on November 21 is to fund transnational research and innovation projects on urban challenges, at an international level in order to help cities in their transition to a more sustainable economy.

Climate change and Energetic transition : Impacts for Defence – Call for expressions of interest - 2023
The French National Research Agency (ANR), in collaboration with the French Defence Innovation Agency (AID), is launching the call for expression of interest “Climate change and Energetic transition : Impacts for Defence”. Applicants are invited to submit proposals to enhance knowledge about climate change and energy transition and their implications for Defence for one or more of these priorities:
Designed to improve France’s success rate in European Research Council (ERC) calls, Tremplin-ERC (T-ERC) is a funding instrument set up by ANR as part of its Work Programme 2023. T-ERC is open to all ERC research disciplines (LS, PE, SH).
The eighth round of the Open Research Area (ORA) is based on an agreement between the Agence nationale de la Recherche (ANR; France), the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG; Germany), the Economic and Social Research Council of UK Research and Innovation (ESRC; the UK), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC; Canada).
The world is facing exceptional social, economic, technological, environmental, and geopolitical challenges, including migration, climate change emergencies, energy crises, war, conflict, political extremism, erosion of democratic institutions, protest, violence, corruption and growing public distrust of governance and expertise. These affect not only the institutions of democratic government but also the wider structures and processes that make our societies work and hold together.
Specific support for research works and innovation for defence: thematic call on space and deep seabed
The French National Research Agency (ANR), in partnership with the French Defence Innovation Agency (AID), is launching the 2023 call for proposals ASTRID: Deep Seabed and Space. The program is entirely funded by the AID and is implemented by ANR.
Call for proposals MATHILDE: maturing of innovations on specific Defence thematics – thematic call on Deep Seabed and Space
The French National Research Agency (ANR), in partnership with the French Defence Innovation Agency (AID), is launching the 2023 call for proposals MATHILDE: maturing of innovations on specific Defence thematics – thematic call on Deep Seabeds and Space.

The Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) Network in collaboration with CHANSE (Collaboration of Humanities and Social Sciences in Europe) is launching a new call for proposals: “Crisis – Perspectives from the Humanities”. We wish to invite transnational consortia to submit proposals for humanities-led research under this theme. Proposed research may draw upon insights and methodologies from a wide spectrum of arts and humanities disciplines. Although humanities-driven, consortia can involve contributions from other research domains where appropriate.
The NORFACE (New Opportunities for Research Funding Agency Cooperation in Europe) network announce a call for transnational social science projects on the theme "Enhancing Well-Being for the Future", with the support of CHANSE (Collaboration of Humanities and Social Sciences in Europe).
