The SPI, together with the Greenland Research Council (NIS), launched a call for interest for a new funding opportunity, the Konrad Steffen Grant (KSG). In memory of Konrad Steffen, one of the founders of the Swiss Polar Institute and its first Scientific Director, the KSG builds on his legacy of collaborative research between researchers based in Switzerland and Greenland on environmental change in Greenland. This funding instrument will provide seed money for research on the topic of Natural Hazards in Greenland.

Funding will be available for up to two projects up to 50’000 CHF in total!

All the information are available on the dedicated webpage and an online information event will take place on 16 December.
