Requests for Proposals: Conservation Technologies - New Methods of Monitoring Ecosystem Health (National Geographic)

This call is permanently open.

The goal is to create novel tools and technologies to monitor ecosystem health.

In the same way that human health is monitored in real time (e.g., thermometer, MRI, blood pressure), environmental diagnostic monitoring techniques are needed to provide practical measurements correlated with ecosystem health. Because of the complexity and interconnectedness of global environmental systems, scalability is crucial for global monitoring. Examples of the types of tools that could be employed are new processing techniques for satellite data, advanced wildlife camera traps, or globally networked chemical and physical sensors.

Organizations can apply for grants, but the person within the organization who will lead the project—not the institution—should be the applicant and will be expected to meet the requirements of the grant.

Typical proposal requests should be less than $50,000; however, applicants may request up to $150,000. Up to 20 percent of the total can be used as a stipend for the applicant and/or team members. Up to 15 percent can be used for institutional overhead (applicable only for awarded grants of at least $50,000). All applications should include a clear review of the state of knowledge about the topic and a plan for evaluating the outcomes of the proposed work.

This call is permanently open.
