PLANETARY FUTURES

 

Competition for support for the acquisition of third-party funds


For the first time, the Panel on Planetary Thinking announces the Planetary Futures Competition (2022-2025). The aim is to provide financial support for transdisciplinary research projects that are in the initial stages of applying for external funding. Project ideas dedicated to researching planetary phenomena using innovative approaches and methods will be awarded funding of up to 5,000 euros. The main aim is to pave the way for explorative research projects that require a research practice beyond disciplinary boundaries and thus entail special risks, challenges and opportunities.


In line with the Hessian University Pact 2021-2025, Justus Liebig University has made it its goal to promote a planetary science culture and to create transdisciplinary points of contact. In this context, the Panel on Planetary Thinking forms a central node for a growing, international network for planetary research. Planetary thinking aims to understand what it means to be part of a planet. It involves moving away from a purely anthropocentric perspective to holistic views of an ever-changing planet. Human societies are thereby understood as actors in complex (inter-)planetary and intertemporal cause-effect structures, whose ability to shape planetary processes can influence them far beyond their own existence. Possible topics for participation in the competition are accordingly broad - suggestions as well as exemplary pilot studies or art projects, such as those of our current Planetary Scholars & Artists in Residence, can be found on our website.


JLU members of all disciplines are can submit applications, provided they are eligible to apply for the respective line of funding. Funding in kind can be obtained for the implementation of a preparatory workshop or other formats that serve the application process. The annual funding must be spent by the end of the following year at the latest.


The application should include the following:

 

  • Abstract of the research project (~ 500 words)
  • Explanation of how the required funds will be used (e.g. outline workshop)
  • Presentation of the funding line intended for the application (e.g. DFG)
  • Short CVs of all applicants

 

Please send your application in either German or English as a single PDF file and by June 30, 2022 to .
