Coming soon: two new calls for proposals with India

India and The Netherlands will soon launch two new calls for proposals:

  1. Climate smart agriculture; expected to be published in the first half of November.
  2. The impact of agriculture on the Ganga water system; expected to be published in December.

Climate smart agriculture

Climate smart agriculture will be the theme of the joint call of NWO and DBT. The main objective of this call is to support interdisciplinary research and innovative approaches in order to develop application-oriented solutions for adaptation of agriculture to incremental climate change and/or increased climatic variability. These solutions should aim at balancing trade-offs and amplifying synergies between economic development and social demands while simultaneously preserving the environment.

The impact of agriculture on the Ganga water system

NWO and DST will launch a new joint call on Water. This call aims to contribute to Cleaning the Ganga, a high priority field of the Indian and Dutch governments and water sector. The specific focus will be on the impact of agriculture on the Ganga water system and related scopes for interventions, in the Hindon sub-basin. Research is expected to build on existing knowledge and link to ongoing relevant (public-private) partnerships. Project proposals should have an interdisciplinary research approach, making optimal use of Indian-Dutch research strengths in both technology and social sciences.
