IIES is pleased to announce its first request for proposals (RFP) to support collaborative, innovative research, education, and engagement projects that advance understanding of and action at the interfaces of energy and society. To IIES, “society” includes all dimensions of the human enterprise: business and economic; political, legal, and regulatory; cultural, artistic, and ethical; behavioral and technological; and beyond. We seek to discover and enable “engaged scholarship”: learning and action that foster energy systems that are socially and environmentally just and sustainable. Proposals are welcome from all Dartmouth faculty, staff, post-docs, and students. Multidisciplinary teams are encouraged, as are teams that include community stakeholders.
The IIES Fall 2018 Internal Grant Program encourages projects that initiate or advance novel or difficult-to-fund lines of inquiry; that incorporate technological and social dimensions of energy systems into both classroom and experiential education; that serve as pilot projects for future federal, state or foundation funding; that deploy new community partnerships toward solutions; and more. We encourage creative ideas, new applications, and novel combinations of perspectives and methods. We encourage teams to bring fresh eyes to enduring questions and to rigorously test emerging hypotheses. We encourage advances in artistic expression, in policy formulation and implementation, in technological development, in business practice, and more.
