Global Affairs, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and Sustainability are pleased to announce the call for grants to promote multidisciplinary collaborations focused on one or more of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Grants for Advancing Sustainable Development Goals facilitate faculty work on the economic, social, and environmental issues that are critical to humankind at the local, regional, national, and international levels. These challenges are complex and interlinked, and to address them requires multi-disciplinary, transdisciplinary, multi-stakeholder collaborations. UC Davis is committed to contributing to the achievement of these goals through research, teaching, and service.
The purpose of the collaborative SDGs grant program is to advance global conversations and incentivize inclusive collaborations among interdisciplinary teams of UC Davis faculty and international partners to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs. Proposals might advance the achievement of the SDGs in in different ways, including but not limited to:
- generating collaborations around specific or multiple SDGs focused on a particular region of the world (e.g. in Latin America, Asia, Europe, Africa, etc.) and/or a particular SDG-oriented challenge (e.g. climate change or alleviating poverty, hunger, or socioeconomic inequality);
- advancing partnership around SDGs with an institution abroad;
- exploring creatively how the SDGs provide a common language and platform for tackling challenges both locally and globally.
Grant funding supports workshops, seminars, speaker series, capacity building, or other similar events or activities taking place either on the UC Davis campus or in other venues around the world in which UC Davis is a visible lead organizer. Proposals for virtual or in-person events are welcome.
