2020 Cross Border Collaboration Awards
CRDF Global is requesting applications on behalf of Fogarty International Center to support the development of new research partnerships to address childhood obesity prevention. These awards are intended to promote new collaborations between U.S. and Latin American investigators as well as among investigators across different Latin American countries. Three types of awards will be funded: travel, conference, and capacity building.
In this solicitation, the Fogarty International Center supports collaborative partnerships between U.S. investigators and investigators in Latin America to expand capacity in performing high-quality childhood obesity research. Examples of relevant awards include but are not limited to:
➢ Travel to a country to develop a collaboration with a new part on a new research project or modify an existing project related to childhood obesity prevention
➢ Develop a conference across multiple countries on topics relevant to childhood obesity prevention research to disseminate findings or identify areas of need and opportunities for follow-on activities
➢ Host a course on an area of critical need and sponsor participants from under-capacitated countries
Successful proposals will address an area of critical need for childhood obesity prevention research and promote new global South/South or North/South collaborations.
All proposals must be submitted electronically through CRDF Global’s Electronic Proposal Submission (EPS) website, no later than January 15, 2020 (23:59) U.S. Standard Time (EST). The website will be available on November 20, 2019.
