Grow Your Idea

The partners of the Geo.X network hold the scientific expertise and infrastructure to run collaborative projects in many fields of geoscience research including transdisciplinary approaches. We want to trigger a creative scientific process to help research ideas grow into collaborative projects. To support this aim, we regularly open calls to provide financial support and help in the organization of various exchange formats such as round tables, workshops with invited guests, retreats and others.

The call for spring 2023 is now closed! We thank all applicants for their interest.
For more information regarding the call, please visit the Grow Your Idea! website.
