AHIA Call: Deadline Extended

In light of the circumstances surrounding the corona virus crisis, we understand that schedules and work plans have been universally upended. At the same time, social distancing measures have opened up time for new opportunities. With that in mind...

The AHIA call for proposals has been extended until 30 April!

Take advantage of this extra time to work on your high-impact proposal. See you in April!


The ALTER-Net High Impact Action (AHIA) initiative was introduced to support high-impact projects that foster collaboration between ALTER-Net partner institutes on hot topics. Past AHIA projects have yielded publications in major journals, produced tangible policy and societal impact, and established long-term international research partnerships.

The 2020 AHIA Call for Proposals is OPEN
