The Environmental Resilience Institute invites applications from groups wishing to participate in the ERI Program to Incubate Collaboratories (EPIC). The program is intended to increase researchers’ capacity to compete for external funding relevant to ERI’s mission.
Beginning May 2022, ERI will convene 3-5 groups working to develop written products on resilience topics of national importance. ERI staff support and a modest budget will be available to groups selected to participate in EPIC.
This program will support working groups developing products designed to attract research funding or influence future funding calls, such as, but not limited to: large collaborative grant proposal, white paper targeting a specific prospective funder, response to a federal Request for Information, scholarly synthesis/review article outlining a resilience research need, comprehensive team collaboration/management plan (e.g., “pre-nup” plan outlined in the NIH team science field guide), project plan co-developed with tribal or other minoritized or underrepresented population.
