Application Deadline : Dec 13th, 2019
IERI has supported many international research activities since 2004. We continuously contribute to the resolution of environmental issues in the developing countries and reinforce the research capacity of the developing countries. From July 2018, we focused the research area to climate change. For 2019, we are moving towards in accelerating the development and climate technologies transfer, themed “Inducting CTCN Technical”. The impacts of climate changes has vulnerably affects the developing countries. In 2020, we are going to more focus on climate technology, especially on 1) carbon reduction and renewable energy (agriculture, energy efficiency, solar energy, etc.); 2) air pollution and climate change (climate modeling, aerosol modeling, PM2.5, PM10, etc.); and 3) implementation of water treatment technology in field. The proposal will be evaluated by feasibility of climate technology and its contribution to the human beings.
