SNAPP Request for Proposals 2017: Supporting Science to Solutions Teams

Deadline: 7 June 2017

Are you interested in natural solutions to climate change, sanitation and water security?

The Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP) is currently seeking proposals to convene interdisciplinary teams, and invites them to be a part of the solution.

SNAPP takes on this key challenge and believes that successful solutions cannot be achieved by any single organization acting alone.

SNAPP provides funding to bring together teams of 12-18 people from diverse organizations that we refer to as working groups. SNAPP working groups meet intensively in 3-4 in-person collaborative sessions (lasting 3-5 days each) over the course of 18-24 months. Strong leaders with open minds and flexible facilitation styles guide the teams to tackle questions at the heart of sustainable economic development, human well-being, and nature conservation. Between sessions, team members collaborate remotely to publish research, develop implementation tools and products, and support decision-makers’ use of the results.

Eligibility Criteria

Researchers and practitioners of any nationality affiliated with an academic, governmental agency, multilateral, or not-for-profit institution may submit a SNAPP proposal. Individuals operating independently are also eligible to apply. Individuals from private sector institutions are fully eligible to be a participant of a SNAPP working group, but are not eligible to lead SNAPP working groups as Principal Investigators. Individuals and organizations from the humanitarian and development sectors are encouraged to submit SNAPP proposals. Proposals from low and middle income countries are especially welcomed.

Evaluation Criteria

Proposals will be evaluated based on their inclusion of:

  • Direct path to impacting policy or practice and broad applicability of results
  • Clear and intriguing science questions
  • Diversity in sectors, disciplines and members
  • Cost-effective use of SNAPP funding and leveraging of other funds

How to Apply

Interested applicants must submit applications via email.
