New Approaches for Manufacturing Gut Microbial Biotherapeutics

Gates Grand Challenges

Phase 1: $100K; Phase 2: up to $1 million USD

This call for proposals seeks fundamentally new strategies for manufacturing gut microbial biotherapeutics to achieve manufacturing efficiency and cost reductions necessary for global health applications. We are particularly open to high risk, unproven concepts that could yield novel systems. We also encourage approaches that may be carried out in low- and middle- income countries (LMIC) and proposers currently working in these settings. In other fields, such as vaccine and biologics manufacturing, new integrated and portable systems have substantially reduced the cost of goods. In the food industry, microbial consortia are commonly manufactured at scale within fermented products such as yogurt and kombucha. In wastewater treatment, sludge reactors can stably host a high degree of microbial diversity. Wholly new manufacturing strategies that take into account the underlying biology and ecology of gut microbial communities could yield substantial advances in the arena.

New Approaches--Strategic Prioritization of Agricultural Development Policies

Gates Grand Challenges

Phase 1: $100K; Phase 2: up to $1 million USD

We seek new approaches for the prioritization of agricultural development policies and long-term strategic planning. Proposals must closely align with the goals of the Gates Foundation's Agricultural Development team. Although proposed solutions may be generated from ideas and contexts outside of sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), all solutions must be relevant, transferrable, and applicable to Nigeria, Tanzania, and Ethiopia. These approaches could include one or more of the following:

Building a more robust approach to the challenge of policy prioritization using - but not limited to - modeling, e.g., creating a new "package" or "blend" of complementary practices that maximizes current tools to expand their use in data-scarce SSA contexts

Improving how modeling is currently done, including new innovations around the cost-benefit analysis element of modeling

Exploring alternative analytical approaches to the policy prioritization challenge outside of modeling altogether.

We will not consider funding:

Literature reviews

Models or approaches that only offer broad, non-specific recommendations

Methods or approaches that are not likely to be replicable or successful under developing country conditions

Traditional policy modeling approaches

Tools and Technologies for Broad-Scale Pest and Disease Surveillance of Crop Plants in Low-Income Countries  

Gates Grand Challenges

Phase 1: $100K; Phase 2: up to $1 million USD The goal of this topic is to solicit innovative tools and technologies for crop pests and disease surveillance over large geographic regions in low-income countries. We are looking for tools and approaches that have the potential to transform crop pest and disease surveillance globally, with a focus on low-income countries. Ideas that result in increased coverage of geographic area will be prioritized over ideas that increase diagnostic accuracy. Ideas that are applicable or adaptable to multiple crops and diseases/pests will be prioritized over ideas that are specific to only one crop or pathogen. Because we are focused on low-income countries, successful proposals will take into account small-scale, difficult-to-reach, intercropped farming systems with multiple pests and diseases. Farmer-facing applications must be able to integrate into country-level extension services (no single-disease based apps) and must be able to function without requiring a smart phone or reliable internet connectivity.  Not Specified

Accelerating Research through International Network-to-Network Collaborations (AccelNet) NSF $3-6 million

The goals of the Accelerating Research through International Network-to-Network Collaborations (AccelNet) program are to accelerate the process of scientific discovery and prepare the next generation of U.S. researchers for multiteam international collaborations.  The AccelNet program supports strategic linkages among U.S. research networks and complementary networks abroad that will leverage research and educational resources to tackle grand scientific challenges that require significant coordinated international efforts.  

The program seeks to foster high-impact science and engineering by providing opportunities to create new collaborations and new combinations of resources and ideas among linked global networks. This solicitation invites proposals for the creation of international networks of networks in research areas aligned either with one of the NSF Big Ideas or a community-identified scientific challenge with international dimensions.  

AccelNet awards are meant to support the connections among research networks, rather than supporting fundamental research as the primary activity.  Each network of networks is expected to engage in innovative collaborative activities that promote synergy of efforts across the networks and provide professional development for students, postdoctoral scholars, and early-career researchers. There are two proposal categories covered by this solicitation:  Catalytic and Full-Scale Implementation.

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.

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.
