Building Resilient and Carbon-Neutral Communities Post COVID

The primary purpose of this call is to fund researchers to a 24-month grant to explore collaborative opportunities with their Indian counterparts. The impact of COVID-19 has been felt disproportionally by remote and rural communities which prior to the pandemic had limited access to reliable infrastructure, secure food supplies, clean water and access to health facilities. As we enter the post COVID era, supply chains have become stressed, there is a back log of patients waiting for routine procedures and our food supplies have become less secure.

Deadline: September 14, 2022

Food Security

The primary purpose is to fund researchers to a one-year grant to explore collaborative opportunities with their Indian counterparts. The funds are related to developing solutions to our pressing problems of food insecurity. Early career researchers are strongly encouraged to apply.

Both Research (STREAM 1) and Demonstration Projects (STREAM 2) will be funded.

Deadline: October 31, 2021
