SDU Climate Cluster is in charge of the administration of an internal instrument pool of 96 MDKK, where SDU researchers can apply for funding for interdisciplinary climate-related research projects over a period of years.
It is possible to apply for financial instruments for five different projects: Elite centre, PhD programme, postdoc programme, fast track and guest researchers.
However, it goes for all the instruments that the grant must be used across at least two faculties. Thereby, SDU Climate Cluster’s core element – the interdisciplinary aspect – is ensured.
SCC's Strategic Grants Council is a SDU internal council that evaluates all applications for SCC instruments (except for Elite Centre). The council decides which applications we must grant the SCC instruments.
The council comprises of an academic faculty representative per faculty, Head of SDU RIO and the Head of SCC. The council has been set up for a period of two years from October 2022.
