HESI Emerging Issues
The Health and Environmental Sciences Institute (HESI) seeks your suggestions for priority emerging scientific issues (human or environmental health) that should be addressed through a focused, multi-sector collaborative program. Proposals will be reviewed in early 2019 and one or more will be selected to from a new scientific collaborative program within HESI. This is NOT a grant program and no direct financial awards to external parties will be made. However, selected programs may receive funding in the form of HESI support for scientific program design, coordination, and staffing. We are seeking topics that focus on the applied human and/or environmental health sciences and that require scientific perspectives and expertise from academe, government, industry, nonprofits, clinicians, and/or others research sectors.
Looking for somewhere to start? Learn more about HESI’s existing scientific activities on our Committees page and in the 2017 Annual Activities Report, as well as our perspectives on important and emerging themes in the Science Foresight document. These resources may help guide you when considering your idea, however HESI welcomes all new proposals whether they are captured in these lists or not!
The deadline to submit proposals for consideration in 2019 is December 14, 2018!
