The Environmental Protection Agency is requesting proposals to fund projects and activities that support the Methane to Markets Partnership. The partnership is an international initiative to reduce global methane emissions by promoting methane capture-and-use projects in four major sectors including agriculture (animal waste management), coal mining, landfills, and oil and gas systems.
EPA expects to award up to 20 cooperative agreements through this announcement, ranging from $25,000 to $300,000 per award, for a total of
$2.5 million. EPA is requesting proposals for projects that support the partnership broadly, but that may include the following types of
activities: directly identify, characterize, or implement methane capture-and-use projects – including technology transfer, feasibility and pre-feasibility studies, training and capacity building, or database development for potential sites.
EPA seeks proposals from international governments, as well as public or private non-profit organizations. The estimated project period for
awards is May 2007 through May 2009. Proposals are due by Dec. 4, 2006 at 4 p.m. Washington, D.C., time.

The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) based in Laxenburg (Austria) would like to draw your attention to its annual 3 month Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) which offers research opportunities to talented young researchers whose interests correspond with IIASA’s ongoing research on issues of global environmental, economic and social change, including climate change.
From June through August 2007 accepted participants will work within one of IIASA's Research Programs http://www.iiasa.ac.at/Admin/YSP/reg-info/programs.html under the guidance of our scientific staff. The YSSP provides a unique opportunity for participants to
- advance their research under the direct supervision of an experienced IIASA scientist, and at the same time contribute to IIASA's scientific agenda;
- broaden their research interests by working in IIASAs interdisciplinary and international research environment;
- build contacts with IIASA's worldwide network of collaborators and with other YSSP fellows.
The deadline for applying to the 2007 Program is 15 January. Attached is a brief description of the program.
