ISSI/ISSI-BJ call for international teams in space and Earth sciences 2024

The International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in Bern (Switzerland) and ISSI-BJ in Beijing (China) invite proposals for establishing International Teams to conduct research in the Space Sciences.

Teams are groups of 8 -12 scientists representing a minimum of 4 different countries, including at least one ESA member state: they will be working together on data analysis, theory and models.

Applicants shall be actively involved in any of the following research fields:

  1. Space Sciences: Astrobiology, Astrophysics and Cosmology, Fundamental Physics in Space, Magnetospheric and Space Plasma Physics, Planetary Sciences, Solar and Heliospheric Physics, and Solar-Terrestrial Sciences.
  2. Earth Sciences using space data. This includes understanding and modelling Earth system processes, as well as climate change projections.

In the field of Earth Sciences the 2024 ISSI Annual Call is open to teams supporting cross-community efforts for improving the reliability of future climate projections by accounting for recent progress in understanding and quantification of different Earth system components. EO Teams focusing on climate change modelling or the global water and carbon budget/cycles are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Call for International Team proposals is available on the ISSI web site.

Proposal Submission Deadline: March 14, 2024
