Call for proposals on Flagship Pilot Studies (FPS)

The World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) has published a call for proposals on 'Flagship Pilot Studies (FPS)', in the context of its Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX). The FPS will focus on sub-continental-scale targeted regions, so as to allow a number of capabilities towards addressing key scientific questions and needs of the vulnerability, impact & adaptation community and end users. 

FPS proposals should be driven by the regional CORDEX communities, although sharing common protocols so as to allow easier exchange of know-how. FPS proposals will be reviewed and endorsed by the CORDEX SAT, together with selected external reviewers, according to the criteria listed in the 'FPS Criteria & Guidelines'.

Further details on the FPS, together with instructions on how to submit your proposal and an application form, can be found here

The first deadline for proposals will be 15th February 2015.
