EEFIT call for return mission proposals

EEFIT is seeking proposals for return missions to locations where EEFIT carried out a mission in the past.

Return missions afford the opportunity to:

  • Improve data on earthquake damage and loss
  • Assess the socio-economic implications of reconstruction and vulnerability reduction
  • Test data collection tools
  • Undertake future mission planning and training benefit

The application form should be typed and emailed as a PDF to [email protected] by 17:00 Wednesday 15 January 2020. Full details of the eligibility criteria are contained within the proposal form.

Applications must be submitted according to the instructions and funding criteria given below otherwise
they may be disqualified:

  • Funding is available for travel costs for two academics and two PhD students per mission
  • Funds will also cover mission equipment costs

Eligible applicants:

  • UK academics including Research Associates and PhD students registered at a UK university who are not already funded by UK research councils.

Ineligible applicants:

  • Academics with current funding from UK research councils (research grants or studentships).

The following criteria will be used to judge proposals:

  • Impact of the proposed return mission in line with EEFIT’s wider objectives
  • Clear objectives for the mission
  • Qualifications and experience of the nominated team leader
  • The proposal demonstrates engagement and collaboration with local stakeholders
