SESYNC Invites Proposals for Interdisciplinary Team-Based Research
SESYNC has a tradition of announcing focal themes with each RFP and below we announce new thematic topic areas. However, there are many potential projects with great applicability to socio-environmental problems that fall outside these themes. Accordingly, we are also open to exciting and creative project proposals outside the topical areas listed below:
Social and Environmental Dimensions of the Food-Water-Energy Nexus
Global Change and Health
Freshwater and Ecosystems in a Changing World
Socio-Environmental Implications of Large-Scale Infrastructure Projects
This 4 (5)-day short course will combine lectures, hands-on computer labs, and project consultation designed to accelerate the adoption of cyber resources for all phases of data-driven research and dissemination.
