2022 PICS Opportunity Projects call for proposals

Do you have a high-impact climate solutions research project? PICS’ OPP may be for you
You can apply beginning April 28, 2022 to get your high-impact climate solutions proposal funded by the PICS Opportunity Projects Program (OPP).

OPP supports new and emerging leaders to pursue bold and impactful climate solutions research. PICS is open to your ideas and innovation, and we encourage teams to contact PICS staff to discuss their proposal before applying.

Successful projects are awarded up to $180,000 over a maximum three-year duration, and three to five awards are made per call. This year, PICS is offering an extra opportunity for a Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Project, funded by the BC Government.

Applications for 2022 call for proposals close on Aug. 3, 2022. Notification of adjudication decisions will be made in December 2022, with projects to start in early 2023.

For more information, visit the PICS Opportunity Projects Program page, read the 2022 Competition Guide for Applicants and the ZEV Guide to Applicants, or email picsopp@uvic.ca.
