Biodiverse Anthropocenes values global mobility! We aim to facilitate scientific mobility to build networks, foster collaborations, and inspire innovative insights in scientific research on biodiversity and society. The VisitANTS Come-and-GOulu Grant is offered to a) scholars interested in visiting the University of Oulu or b) ANTS members looking to visit a different academic institution within Finland or abroad to collaborate on research, writing, or funding application activities. A mobility visit can have various purposes, but the intended actions must align with the goals of Biodiverse Anthropocenes.

Proposed initiatives can span a wide range of natural and social science and humanities disciplines (e.g., anthropology, archaeology, biology, ecology, education, environmental humanities, geography, history, medicine, philosophy, etc.). They may also include a citizen science or a creative component.

This grant is offered on a rolling basis (no deadline), though awards are subject to funding availability. Both incoming and outgoing visits can range from 2 weeks to 3 months. The grant amount (€ 2000/month) is intended to cover basic living costs such as accommodation and food, as well as travel costs to/from Oulu. Please note that these grants do not cover conference or workshop participation; they are intended for directed institutional visits to produce high-caliber scientific outputs.

Applications for both incoming and outgoing grants must include the following: cover letter (max 1 page), mobility plan including a schedule for activities and outputs (max 2 pages); CV (max 4 pages); and Budget Allocation (outgoing visits) . We aim to respond to applications with a decision within one month of submission. To apply, please visit HERE.
