LIT Calls.

In an effort to support cutting-edge research, LIT announces bi-annual "Calls for Proposals". Projects may be submitted in various categories.

There are also special calls featuring exclusive targets and objectives.

Currently Open Calls for Proposals:

 

LIFT_C Call 2 2023

Given the many challenges and global crises we face today, the Linz Institute for Transformative Change (LIFT_C) aims to encourage interdisciplinary partnerships by issuing research calls.

Studies should include new approaches to organizational structures, the workplace, community involvement, public health care, and (re)using resources. The research should aim at unraveling the complexity of these dynamics, including the role of government policies, socio-economic institutions, social attitudes, as well as addressing technological and medical advances that facilitate (or hinder) sustainable change processes.

The call is titled: "Socio-Ecological Transformational Change".

The submission deadline is March 11, 2024.
