Impact Goals RFP Question and Answer Webinar
February 8, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Are you interested in submitting a proposal for the IonE Impact Goals RFP, but have questions about the call or the proposal logistics?
Join IonE for this Impact Goals RFP Question and Answer webinar. During the webinar, we will briefly share the goals of the RFP and provide an overview of the proposal logistics before answering questions.
The Institute on the Environment invites members of University of Minnesota or community teams to respond to our Impact Goals Request for Proposals (RFP), open now through March 15, 2022. This Request for Proposals (RFP) is part of a multi-year initiative, during which IonE will competitively award grants and professionally support teams of faculty, staff, and non-University partners working on:
- IonE’s current Impact Goals – becoming carbon neutral, defining a sustainable land use, and achieving clean drinking water for all;
- Practices and innovations at the intersection of healthy and sustainably-produced food, with attention to consumer choice and public policy; or
- Another specific sustainability objective or outcome, including campus sustainability, that is clearly articulated as a sustainability goal and identifies the barriers that must be overcome to achieve it.
These research funds support interdisciplinary teams conducting engaged scholarship that contributes new research and associated outcomes.
A Statement of Intent is due February 14, 2022. Final award selections will be made and announced by June 1, 2022, with the projects starting July 1, 2022. We anticipate awarding up to seven projects – and up to $100,000 per project.
