The Belmont Forum, in collaboration with Future Earth and JPI Oceans has launched the previously pre-announced Collaborative Research Action (CRA) call aimed at at bringing together researchers and other expertise across the globe to innovate solutions to accelerate sustainable use of oceans and minimize the effects from global change.
PEGASuS 2: Ocean Sustainability is an open call for research projects that focus on synthesis research for ocean sustainability. Based on the successful model implemented by NCEAS, PEGASuS 2 will support up to four separate working groups to be based at NCEAS in Santa Barbara, California. Additionally, one postdoctoral fellow will be supported to engage with selected research teams.
Thematic areas for this solicitation were developed through a global scoping process lead by Future Earth, followed by additional consultations co-lead by Future Earth and the Belmont Forum.
