CONducting ComplEx Research Together (CONCERT) Program
The Research Institute for Environment, Energy, and Economics (RIEEE) was established to underscore the University's dedication to sustainability by fostering related research. The CONCERT grant program is RIEEE's primary seed funding mechanism.
The CONCERT program supports new and existing research projects that involve one or more of the RIEEE core research areas, and align with funding priorities described in the call for proposals. While collaborative, multidisciplinary or ”convergent” research is preferred, it is not required. Research teams may be composed of faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students, EHRA administrative staff, and others such as research professors and external collaborators.
The CONCERT call for proposals is usually released early in the spring term, with proposals due near the end of the term and award notices sent over the summer. All deadlines, funding priorities and submission instructions are detailed in the call.
