The SDG Challenge 2022 is an opportunity for research teams to develop innovative solutions relating to challenges associated with climate, biodiversity, and the environment. Under this call, in partnership with Irish Aid, applications are invited that contribute to the interconnected areas of SDG 13: Climate Action, SDG 14: Life Below Water , and SDG 15: Life on Land.
The SDG Challenge invites research teams to develop innovative solutions relating to challenges associated with climate, biodiversity, and the environment. Funding is available for collaborative research teams based in Ireland and Irish Aid partner countries (South Africa, Ethiopia, Malawi, Uganda, Vietnam, Tanzania, Zambia, Mozambique, and Sierra Leone).
- It is expected that teams will encompass a range of technical and non-technical skills to address barriers associated with challenge definition and solution deployment and that they will represent collaborative and equitable partnerships between researchers in Ireland and the partner country.
- Teams must include expertise in the STEM research area underpinning the proposed solution, but should also include knowledge or experience in areas such as for example, international development, development economics, or behavioural or social sciences, in order to inform the adoption and impact of novel interventions.
Grant size: €300k – €1M
