An online information event will be held via Zoom on 16 December 2021, 14:00 – 15:00 (registration). During this event, the Swiss Polar Institute (SPI) and the Greenland Research Council (NIS) will explain the concept of the Konrad Steffen Grant and present more concrete potential topics, based on relevant research questions for Greenland (see full description here). Participants will be asked to brainstorm around these topics in smaller groups, and to suggest additional topics within Natural Hazards if applicable.
After the information event, scientists interested in participating in a workshop during which final project will be defined are invited to fill in a short form, outlining their ideas and potential contributions (deadline 10 January 2022). Workshop participants will be selected according to the complementarity of their expertise and potential contribution to ongoing research in Greenland.
