Just and Equitable Communities, Water and Ecosystems: Grand Challenges Phase 2
Phase 2 of the Provost’s Grand Challenge Research Initiative includes
both a competitive call for proposals from interdisciplinary teams and a
call for nominations for participation in a Grand Challenges Research
Scholar collaborative for an extended period of interdisciplinary
engagement. Both have deadlines in March 2017.
The GC Research—Phase 2 process engages the Twin Cities campus
community through two tracks that are distinct from the two-tiered
grants process launched in Phase 1 of the Provost’s Grand Challenges Research Initiative. The opportunities for 2017–18 are:
- Grand Challenges Research Proposal: A
competitive process for interdisciplinary teams, focused on a smaller
number of larger awards—up to $600,000 per award—but with opportunities
for smaller awards as well. An enhanced award opportunity is offered by the Institute on the Environment. Pre-proposals are due March 20, 2017, with invitations for full proposals extended in May.
- Grand Challenges Research Scholar Collaborative:A
call for nominations, including self-nominations, to participate in a
research collaborative for an extended period--a concentrated investment
of time with an interdisciplinary cohort that will provide an
opportunity to explore new research directions and strategies and
develop a collaborative plan of action for exciting major initiatives
focused on one of the spotlighted Grand Challenges (or their
intersection). Nominations and applications are due March 1, 2017. more... https://strategic-planning.umn.edu/gc-research-initiative-phase2
