Wellcome Trust: Second Round for Sustaining Health Funding Now Open
We are seeking interdisciplinary research proposals for pilot projects that look to address health and sustainability challenges, specifically at the nexus between health, nutrition and the environment. We are particularly interested in projects relating to two sub-themes highlighted by our scoping work:
• The health impacts of climate change mitigation and adaptation measures,
• How to feed 9 billion.
Projects outside of these areas but relevant to Sustaining Health in other ways are also welcomed. Proposals should be designed to open up new research avenues, ultimately leading to work that will have a significant impact on human health. We invite proposals from a broad range of disciplines and we particularly encourage applications from cross-sector collaborations involving academic organisations, industry/business, non-governmental organisations and/or government agencies. Applicants may be based anywhere in the world. As general guidance, awards are in the order of £250,000, exceptionally up to £500,000.
Deadline for concept notes: 25 July 2014

Lab’s Development Innovation Ventures (DIV)
DIV looks for compelling new development solutions in a year-round competition, rigorously tests them, and helps scale those that are proven successful to reach millions of beneficiaries around the world. Applications accepted on a rolling basis.
DIV is interested in innovations that are expected to lead to transformative (as opposed to incremental) improvements that could ultimately scale across multiple developing countries and, ideally, multiple sectors in these countries. DIV recognizes that development breakthroughs can come from anywhere—a lab in a university, a local organization or a passionate entrepreneur. Solutions range from new technologies and new service-delivery practices to novel or more cost-effective variations on existing practices. Innovations are expected to eventually scale up through the private sector, the public sector, or a combination of the two in order to reach sustainability without DIV support.
