The EarthLab Innovation Grants Program seeks to engage University of Washington faculty and employees with PI status in the co-definition of transdisciplinary research, scholarship, and creative activity related to our most pressing environmental challenges. We will invest in first-mile challenges – the envisioning, development or piloting of new projects. We encourage proposals from all disciplines at the University of Washington.
Through the Innovation Grants Program, EarthLab hopes to realize the following outcomes: 1) an increase in capacity across the UW for innovations in the application of transdisciplinary scholarship; 2) deepened engagement with diverse community partners (e.g. practitioners, policy makers, tribes and community groups outside of UW), and 3) funded research projects that address co-defined problems from multiple perspectives and that are designed to generate knowledge that is both usable and used.
A total of $175,000 is available in this pilot year, with award amounts between $5,000 and $50,000. There is one $50,000 grant that will be awarded jointly by EarthLab and the UW Population Health Initiative.
The deadline for EarthLab proposals is January 30, 2019, 11:59 pm PST.
