Resilience 

Refugee Health

Integrative Action for Resilience: Progress Through Community-Research Partnerships Robert Wood Johnson Foundation $1.4 million The Integrative Action for Resilience initiative is a two-phase opportunity for local community leaders—who are interested in designing and implementing rigorous resilience research to generate evidence that can inform their own decision-making about policies and projects needed to build resilience in their community, and for researchers—who are interested in partnering in new ways with community-based organizations to apply their analytic capabilities to community-identified challenges. This is a unique opportunity to connect community leaders and researchers who have not worked together before but may be interested and well-suited to pursue resilience research together. Current community-research partnerships are important, but this call is for new partnerships to develop between community leaders and researchers who have not previously worked together but will find complementary benefits from engagement.

Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy and Water Systems  (INFEWS)

NSF

$750K-$2.5 m

The INFEWS program seeks to support research that conceptualizes natural systems for food, energy, and water (FEW) systems broadly and inclusively, incorporating social and behavioral processes (such as decision making and governance), physical processes (such as built infrastructure and new technologies for more efficient resource utilization), natural processes (such as biogeochemical and hydrologic cycles), biological processes (such as agroecosystem structure and productivity), and cyber-components (such as sensing, networking, computation and visualization for decision-making and assessment).  Investigations of these complex systems may produce discoveries that cannot emerge from research on food or energy or water systems alone.  It is the synergy among these components in the context of sustainability that will open innovative science and engineering pathways to produce new knowledge, novel technologies, and innovative predictive capabilities.

The overarching goal of the INFEWS program is to catalyze well-integrated, convergent research to transform understanding of the FEW Nexus as integrated social, engineering, physical, and natural systems in order to improve system function and management, address system stress, increase resilience, and ensure sustainability.

While improving the status quo is vital to the health and well-being of millions of Americans now, the Pioneering Ideas Brief Proposal opportunity reaches beyond incremental changes to explore the ideas and trends that will influence the trajectory and future of health. Ultimately, we support work that will help us learn what a Culture of Health can look like—and how we can get there.

Humanitarian Aid

EIC Horizon Prize for 'Affordable High-Tech for Humanitarian Aid' European Commission Not Specified

The challenge consists of developing innovative solutions for the delivery of humanitarian aid based on frugal application of advanced technologies.

The European Union and its Member States are major humanitarian donors. Humanitarian crises and disasters have increased in number, complexity and severity over the last 25 years. Given the scale of today’s crises and disasters, funding to cover humanitarian needs cannot keep up. The humanitarian system is being challenged to do more, for more people, and at greater cost. Cooperation between international organisations and NGOs responding to crises, end-users and local actors, research and scientific communities and the private sector is crucial in this respect. Introducing innovative solutions for the delivery of humanitarian aid could help enhance the humanitarian response, which is particularly important for those in a most vulnerable situation.

Solutions should be developed through a frugal innovation approach, and should be novel and based on advanced technologies and services, demonstrating the added value and potential of one or more advanced technologies (not only limited to Information and Communication Technology). Tested and proven in humanitarian aid delivery, these solutions should be safe, scalable, resource-sustainable, replicable and usable in other contexts.

Innovative solutions should be inclusive, i.e. co-created and developed by different stakeholders with local actors, and accessible to a large number of people in a given context of humanitarian aid delivery settings.
