The Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society seeks proposals for research and education on the energy challenges faced by society – and the societal challenges posed by energy. This broad call for proposals welcomes diverse energy and society projects from all disciplines. Within that breadth we encourage applicants to consider our 2019-2020 theme: “Investing in Our Energy Futures.” The theme highlights the multitude of interlocking needs for investments in society’s energy transitions (financial and technical, personnel and personal) and invites critical reflections on the social implications of our individual and collective energy choices. We hypothesize that investing in more sustainable, equitable and resilient energy futures requires financial and technical resources as well as critical co-investments in policy, culture, values and imagination. We are also keen to encourage meaningful collaborations across disciplines and encourage proposals that integrate across two or more disciplines, especially those outside the traditional areas touching on energy.
Pre-proposals are due March 15th.
