Environmental Convergence Opportunities in Chemical, Bioengineering...

By National Science Foundation
Government Agency
Creating effective solutions to our most pressing environmental and sustainability challenges requires imaginative thinking - the kind that evolves when researchers from disparate fields, expertise, or perspectives fully immerse themselves in work toward a common goal.

Description

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM), in their report "Environmental Engineering for the 21st Century: Addressing Grand Challenges," identified five critical challenges we must address as a society: 1. Sustainably supply food, water, and energy 2. Curb climate change and adapt to its impacts 3. Design a future without pollution and waste 4. Create efficient, healthy, and resilient cities 5. Foster informed decisions and actions. This solicitation will support projects that tackle these grand challenges using a convergent research model that seamlessly integrates fundamental knowledge and expertise from the fields of chemical process, transport, and biological science and engineering with that of the sustainability and environmental engineering fields.
