To celebrate the tenth year of the RENKEI network, we are delivering a fellowship programme and Winter School for Early Career Researchers (ECR), which will engage a range of disciplines within five climate-focused themes. The programme will enable UK/Japanese collaborations that advance cutting-edge research into climate adaptation and resilience, and facilitate national and international policy engagement and impact.
The programme will focus on the researcher response to the interdisciplinary, global challenge of climate adaptation and resilience across the following RENKEI themes:
The network will consist of a cohort of up to 36 Early Career Researchers coming together for a programme of cohort-based virtual events, individual virtual mentoring fellowships, an in-person 1 week Winter School in Kyoto, Japan and opportunities for extended UK/Japan visits and small project funding.
The RENKEI programme will have a variety of events in 2022 and early 2023 that will bring together the members of the network to advance relationships and build collaborations. The main programme events that will occur are as follows:
All fellows must attend all events in the programme and be willing and available to fully commit to the programme opportunities.
