The Elsevier Foundation invites applications for the Elsevier Foundation Chemistry for Climate Action Challenge in 2022.
Climate change is the most important challenge for the future of our planet, affecting every
country on every continent, and it is essential that we take action. Climate change is not
only causing rising sea levels and changing weather patterns, but is also disrupting national
economies and affecting lives.
With a new focus on Climate Action, the Elsevier Foundation Challenge also aims to
recognize the pivotal role women play in combating climate change. Projects
submitted to the Challenge must therefore take into consideration gender components such
as addressing the role of women in adapting to climate shifts and participating in policy making and leadership roles.

- The Elsevier Foundation Chemistry for Climate Action Challenge awards 2 prizes of €25,000 each.
