IASC supports Cross-Cutting Initiatives, activities which are defined as involving at least two of the five IASC Working Groups. The objective of this WG-spanning program is to promote system-scale activities within IASC and to encourage the WGs to explore interdisciplinary activities, in particular across the natural and social sciences. 

The 2017 cross-cutting funding call is open until 30 June, 2017. Funds requested in this call should be spent by 30 June, 2018. Further details are available in the application form. Information on previously-funded IASC Cross-Cutting activities is available in the 2017 IASC Bulletin or on the Cross Cutting Initiative page.
