Research Concept Solicitation
CARB is Accepting Research Concepts from the Public
Every year, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) funds research projects that inform the state’s long-term strategies to achieve its air pollution and climate change goals, while ensuring co-benefits for the economy and health in all communities. CARB is initiating its fiscal year 2021-2022 research planning process by soliciting research concepts from the general public. This is an opportunity to suggest multi-disciplinary approaches to assess progress and holistically address the challenges of reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and exposure to harmful air pollutants, especially to California’s most vulnerable populations. Successful research projects should address questions in a comprehensive fashion that ensures protection for all California communities.
CARB’s current research priorities are described in more detail in the Triennial Research Plan for Fiscal Years 2018-2021 (Plan). Examples of previously funded research projects can be found in the Plan’s appendices.
Submissions should consist of a title and a brief (2000 characters or less, including spaces) description of your research concept.
Deadline: June 22, 2020, 5:00 pm, PST
Concepts submitted after this deadline will be considered for the next fiscal year.
For questions regarding the concepts, contact Sarah Pittiglio at Sarah.Pittiglio@arb.ca.gov.
