Global Challenges Research Teams

world icon

Collaborative teams of faculty that build cross-campus partnerships to address the world’s most pressing regional and global environmental issues. We provide seed funding to foster creative and innovative approaches to sustainability grand challenges and establish interdisciplinary relationships to conduct research in new areas and with expanded applicability.

Each year the School seeks proposals for new, interdisciplinary partnerships of faculty to address sustainability grand challenges through creative research and synthesis activities. Global Challenges Research Teams advance sustainability through integration of environmental, societal, and economic knowledge in a team-based, creative approach to solve real-world problems.

The School issues a request for proposals each December with a late January deadline for the following academic year. Successful proposals will bring together researchers from across disciplines at CSU; address pressing global and regional sustainability issues through new research, new approaches to existing research, or research synthesis; are highly innovative and enterprising in their approach; and are applicable to real-world sustainability challenges. Join our mailing list to be notified when the request for proposals opens.
