Global Environmental Change
With sustainability being an urgent global challenge, we invite proposals that focus on the environment from interdisciplinary perspectives which include, but are not limited to science, STEM, social science, and the arts and humanities. In addition, proposals that engage the economic, political and/or cultural systems related to environmental change are also welcomed.
Grant proposals that address and seek to advance social challenges within Chilean society are encouraged. While not an exhaustive list, public policy related to education, democracy, social cohesion and equity, and health are of particular strategic interest.
Astrophysics and Astro-engineering
Proposals that focus on theoretical and observational astrophysics are welcome. Cosmology, ground-based optical astronomy, space science, in addition to technological, computational, and aerospace problem-solving and design, are also areas of interest.
Research into the understanding of any or all aspects of natural disasters including contributing factors, mitigation and prevention is welcome.
Collaboration between ND and UC|Chile in the Arts is encouraged whether that be through projects of creative expression/imagination or through research.
