The U.S. Civilian Research & Development Foundation (CRDF) is currently accepting proposals for its 2009 Cooperative Grants Program (CGP 2009) Climate Change and Energy Competition. This program provides awards of $90,000 for up to two years of support to joint research teams of U.S. and Ukrainian scientists. Recognizing the importance of coordinating international research efforts on climate change, CRDF will support U.S.-Ukrainian teams engaged in research that addresses the impacts of or solutions to climate change, including energy efficiency and production.

Research projects eligible for this competition should be submitted to one of the two Focus Areas of this competition, Climate Change Impacts or Climate Change Solutions. All applications will be considered equally regardless of which focus area they are submitted to. Proposals eligible for Focus Area I: Climate Change Impacts should address the impacts of climate change on human and biological systems; ii) measure, monitor, and model the processes that will provide accurate future projections of climatic and environmental changes and/or iii) study regionally specific feedbacks associated with the climate change. Proposals eligible for Focus Area II: Climate Change Solutions should address solutions to climate change such as developing technologies in energy sphere, agriculture, and materials science and that may mitigate or reduce the impact of climate change.
CRDF will accept applications related to climate change from all natural sciences.
CRDF receives funding for this program from the U.S. Department of State and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
