The Strategic Research Council’s (SRC) call for letters of intent for the 2020 programmes closed on Wednesday 15 January. The SRC received a total of 89 letters of intent within the two programmes included in the call: 52 letters of intent for the Literacy and evidence-informed decision-making (LITERACY) programme, and 37 letters of intent for the Climate change and humans (CLIMATE) programme.
Review panels will assess the applications for their societal relevance, impact and scientific quality. They will also consider how well the applications match the programme objectives. The SRC will decide the projects that will go through to the second stage of the call by the end of March.
