NWO & São Paulo Research Foundation
Information about fund:
This call addresses interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research with the aim of finding context-specific solutions that work or have the potential to work in particular settings, in order to draw generalised lessons for settings elsewhere. Taking into account all the competing demands, the solutions should focus on sustainable landscape use that combines a range of functions and demands. This will require a multi‐level (i.e. field/farm; landscape; national level) and multi‐ and transdisciplinary approach in order to arrive at such comprehensive solutions. Part of the project should be an in‐depth case study analysis that results in the development of transferable lessons.
