Relatively little research has gone into the effects that climate change and efforts to slow down the phenomenon have on human health and wellbeing in Finland. The Academy Programme Climate Change and Health (CLIHE) aims to produce new information to help forecast the effects that climate change has on health, prevent harmful impacts on health and adapt to climate change. At the core of the programme is a desire to provide the knowledge base needed to assess health risks resulting from climate change. The programme seeks to find better, more in-depth ways to analyse short-term and long-term impacts on health and to develop assessment techniques. The programme memorandum contains more details on the programme’s background, aims, thematic areas and review criteria. The full call text and the review criteria are available below.

PI of the project must be a researcher with a doctoral degree or at the professor or docent level. The funding can be applied for by both individual research teams and consortia composed of two or several research teams.

The call’s funding budget has been set at a maximum of 8 million euros. Individual projects may apply for a maximum of 500,000 euros. Consortia may apply for a maximum of 1,200,000 euros: a single consortium subproject may be granted a maximum of 500,000 euros.
