SESYNC Invites Proposals for Interdisciplinary Team-Based Research

National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) Announces Fall 2019 Request for Proposals for Collaborative and Interdisciplinary Team-Based Research
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) brings together diverse groups in new, interdisciplinary collaborations to identify solutions to society’s most challenging and complex environmental problems. SESYNC announces its Fall 2019 Request for Proposals for collaborative and interdisciplinary team-based research projects under two programs: Pursuits and Workshops.
SESYNC invites proposals for pressing socio-environmental synthesis projects focused on tools, methods, and other practices applicable to actionable team research.
We encourage those interested in these opportunities to discuss their ideas with SESYNC prior to developing their proposal. Discussions with team leaders can often help determine whether an idea is appropriate for SESYNC, as well as how syntheses might be structured to achieve strong interdisciplinary/transdisciplinary outcomes. Please contact research@sesync.org to schedule a conversation. In your email, include a paragraph and/or short concept document about your project ideas (even if they’re not fully developed) to help us put you in touch with the appropriate person at SESYNC.
You may also find our videos on Tips for Submitting Your Research Proposal and Lessons Learned for Interdisciplinary Collaboration helpful as you develop your proposal.
