The Global Centers program is an NSF-led effort, implemented in partnership with like-minded international funders, to encourage and support large-scale collaborative research on use-inspired themes in climate change and clean energy. Here, the "used-inspired" nature of the research refers to project outcomes leading to foreseeable benefits to society. These outcomes should help the assessment and/or mitigation of climate-change impacts on society, people, and communities, and/or the development of clean-energy solutions. NSF partner countries in this inaugural Global Centers competition are Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. International funding organizations, hereafter called funding partner agencies, are as follows:

  • Australia: Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO)
  • Canada: Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)
  • United Kingdom: UK Research and Innovation (UKRI)

Proposals should target and be submitted to one of the following Tracks (see details in the Project Description section):

  • Track 1: Global Center Implementation: Research Partnerships with Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom
  • Track 2: Community-driven Global-Center Design

Application Deadline: May 10, 2023
