The goal of the program is to provide 1-2 years of seed funding for research projects that will then be positioned to successfully compete for major external grants. Awardees are expected to work with GRI on identifying follow-on sponsors for the research and to pursue external grants by the end of Year 1 of funding.

Within the theme of resilience, GRI supports multi-disciplinary research in eight strategic focus areas:

  1. Tools and measurement
  2. Design and engineering
  3. Governance and incentives
  4. Individual and health
  1. Social and community
  2. Enterprise and Economy
  3. Security and systems
  4. Socio-ecological
