UNAM – University of California
Call for Collaborative Research Proposals 2023 Climate Issues
The Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) and the University of California Alianza MX (UC Alianza MX) are pleased to announce the first “Call for Collaborative Research Proposals in Basic and Applied Sciences between UNAM and the University of California.”
The main objective of this Call for Proposals is to enable the establishment of new collaborative research initiatives with the potential for creating permanent ties between UNAM and the UC that will grow and continue with the support of other institutional and extramural funds.
Proposals are expected to lead to the development of major, long-term collaborations among groups of researchers from both institutions and to significantly advance knowledge in the following disciplines in the context of climate change:
- Climate resilience
- Coastal flooding
- Drought and fire ecology
- Urban areas and built environment
- Extreme heat and health-related effects
- GHG emissions and air quality
- Rural areas and sustainable agriculture
- Soil functions and management
- Sustainable food production and nutritional genomics
- Other related disciplines with a positive impact on society.
Special consideration will be given to proposals that also enhance student training and research exchanges.
Selected proposals will be funded for two (2) years.
|Publication of the call||Wednesday, February 1|
|Application deadline||Wednesday, March 15|
|Evaluation committee meeting||Wednesday, April 26|
|Publication of the results||Friday, April 28|
|Project start date||Tuesday, May 2|
Each proposal must be co-directed by eligible Principal Investigators (PIs) from UNAM and the UC; and must support multi-disciplinary collaboration among groups of researchers.
a) The objective of this call is to establish binational research groups, so proposals must include PIs from at least two UC campuses and at least one PI from UNAM. (Note: Preference will be given to proposals that include more than one collaborator from UNAM.)
- UNAM PIs must be full-time researchers or professors.
- UC PIs must meet eligibility criteria for research or training contracts and grants by academic appointees in the following title groups: (1) Members of the Academic Senate, including emeriti; (2) Appointees in the Agronomist series, including emeriti; (3) Appointees at 50 percent or more of full time in the Adjunct Professor series, the Clinical Professor series, the Professional Research Series, or the Cooperative Extension Specialist series.
- Postdoctoral researchers and students are not eligible to submit proposals, though PIs are encouraged to submit proposals that include academic participants from their institutions, including postdoctoral researchers and students.

The proposal plan should include the following specific components:
- Scientific objectives;
- Research methods;
- International context;
- Current and previous cooperation among PIs;
