Program Description

The Grand Challenge is a one-time opportunity, supported by funds from the President’s Priority Fund. It will provide seed funding totaling $100,000 over a two-year granting cycle for one project at UBC Okanagan. As a Campus as a Living Lab project, researchers must partner with campus operations staff to design and implement innovative solutions to an on-campus climate challenge. Researchers for this challenge are encouraged to seek community partners. Projects should explicitly connect with one or more priorities identified by the UBC 2021 Climate Emergency Task Force. We invite proposals from across all academic disciplines and across operational areas at UBC Okanagan, and projects must have both a Faculty Lead and an Operational Staff Lead.
