New working group proposal

The call for new working groups happens twice per year. The next deadline for new working group proposals will be Monday 12 April 2021.

Before proposing a new PAGES working group, please ensure you are familiar with the guidelines. New working groups must fit within PAGES' Science Structure and scope of PAGES' interests.

You must also contact a member of the PAGES Scientific Steering Committee, discussing your plans, at least two weeks before you submit this proposal.​ Applications received without SSC member notification will not be looked upon favorably.

Early in your research, please identify a data liaison officer for data stewardship and archiving, to make sure data and metadata is collected according to the rules of the working group's chosen data repository, and to liaise with PAGES' Data Stewardship Integrative Activity. See here for more details.

PAGES considers supporting scoping workshops intended to develop new working groups, under the Open Call category of meeting support.

Please note: This form will time-out after 2 hours, so to avoid loss of data prepare your proposal offline using this template (MS Word) and copy-paste the text into the form. Upon sending, you will receive an email confirming the content of your application for your records.
