Meeting Global Research Challenges at the European Geophysical Union (EGU)

This week at the European Geophysical Union’s annual meeting in Vienna, Belmont Forum funded research into global challenges of food and freshwater security, resilience in the Arctic  and mountainous regions, coastal vulnerability, and biodiversity are on display.  Information about current awards, the Forum’s new open data policy, and future Forum events is available.  Secretariat staff are on hand for all other questions.

Projects funded in these thematic areas are advancing system understanding through a partnership among natural and social scientists and stakeholders.  All awards are supported by a multi-lateral consortia of organizations, representing research funders on six continents.  Through the open data policy and principles, future Belmont Forum project data will be made publicly available for even greater connectivity to a diversity of stakeholders and the broader global change research community.

If you are in Vienna this week, please come visit us at the Belmont Forum display in the Austria Center Vienna and lend your perspective at the Belmont Forum e-Infrastructures Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday, April 20th at 7pm CET.  For these meeting events and future Belmont Forum activity, you can follow us on Twitter!
