ENAC Transdisciplinary Cluster Grants

Call for projects 2021

The general mission of this call is to explore opportunities and challenges of digitalization to drive changes needed for sustainable development in the natural and built environment through transdisciplinary collaboration. The call aims at enabling problem-driven research efforts and co-creation linked to digitalization in order to contribute to holistic approaches for sustainable urban and rural development. We expect applicants to explore, initiate, and/or participate in new types of collaborations with non-academic stakeholders and the project idea should show potential to grow into full-scale collaborative research projects. The application should involve one principal investigator (PI), who is an early-career scientist employed at an ENAC laboratory and who will set-up a collaboration with minimum one non-academic partner.
