Fund announced to research mental wellbeing in cities

APPLICATIONS are being invited to research mental wellbeing in cities – from a Danish foundation, which has put up a 65,000 Euros funding pot.

The Ramboll Foundation is the organisation behind Danish consulting engineering group, Ramboll.

Says the Foundation, here: “More than four billion people live in cities today, and nearly two-thirds of the world’s population will live in cities by 2040.  

“Resilient, sustainable, and liveable cities require inhabitants who work productively, contribute to the community, and cope with the stresses of life. The mental health and wellbeing of people is central to success of cities, going hand-in-hand with restoring nature and mitigating climate change. 

“Therefore, the Ramboll Foundation is delighted to announce the 2022 Flemming Bligaard Award which calls on early-career researchers to submit their ground-breaking research within the theme, ‘Mental wellbeing in cities’.”

Applications are required by October 10.
