The Economic and Social Research Council, through the Place-Based Climate Action Network, invites proposals for the first round of climate action project grants.

The first round encourages proposals that focus on the partner cities of Belfast, Edinburgh and Leeds. Applications may be submitted under the following headings:
•impact grants, for example co-production of decision-relevant knowledge;
•engagement grants, for example events, secondments and campaigns;
•training grants, for example skill development;
•innovation grants, for example seed-funding for new initiatives or products.
