The Sustainable Enterprise Partnership (SEP), a distinctive transdisciplinary approach to world-class education and research on business and sustainability partnering Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management, the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) and Syracuse Center of Excellence, announces a second round of mini-grant funding.
The SEP is making available three mini-grants of $5,000 each for summer 2009. All professors and researchers from SU, SUNY-ESF and SyracuseCoE with interest and expertise in sustainable business concepts, practices, metrics and assessments are invited to apply. In keeping with the SEP’s emphasis on transdisciplinary collaboration and integration, investigators from at least two disciplines will be required for each proposal that promotes research in sustainable enterprise. The call for proposals is available at http://partnersforsustainability.org; the deadline is March 16.
The SEP utilizes the combined strengths of the Whitman School, SUNY-ESF and SyracuseCoE to offer world-class education and research on sustainable enterprise and provide an in-depth understanding of sustainability policy and practice. This unique collaboration actively integrates business, science, policy and practice to develop and provide graduate and undergraduate curricula, educational outreach and research on sustainable enterprise, with particular emphasis on small and medium-sized business enterprises.
