The IGCP is currenlty supporting 60 projects which are assessed by a peer-review process and have a lifetime of five years. Annual funding levels range between 5,000 and 10,000 USD to be used exclusively for meetings or workshops. Additional resources are usually needed to ensure realisation of the projects’ research goals, and scientists are strongly encouraged to raise such funds.Projects must focus, inter alia, on high-quality science, be of international importance and societal relevance, show interdisciplinary cooperation, and constitute international participation, including scientists from developing countries.Project proposals may be submitted by individuals or groups to the IGCP Secretariat accompanied by a letter of endorsement (if possible) from one of the project leader’s National IGCP Committees. Project leaders are strongly advised to inform the UNESCO National Commission representatives and UNESCO Permanent Delegation of their home country.
