The purpose of workshop grants is to promote innovative research and support collaborations among researchers in the neuro- and social sciences who are working at different levels of analysis, with an emphasis on cultural processes as central.
Workshops can provide: (1) a venue to stimulate broad and innovative thinking which incorporates different perspectives; and/or (2) support for researchers working at different levels of analysis or disciplines to address novel or refractory questions by focusing on “nuts and bolts” of collaboration or the development of new methods or tools.
Topics must align with the FPR mission and CMB network objectives; and theories, models, or empirical research should benefit from multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, or transdisciplinary perspectives. Proposals should involve at least two members of the CMB network.
In addition to building collaborative relationships across levels of analysis, the workshops should also result in a tangible product, such as: (i) a published summary or report of results; and/or special issue of a journal, or edited volume; (ii) the development of a larger extramural research grant proposal; (iii) development of methods amenable to testing integrative questions in novel settings.
The FPR is offering 2 grants for up to $30,000 each in 2019. Organizers are responsible for the selection of the topic and participants, and all logistics.
Funds can be used for all relevant expenses related to a meeting (in person or virtual).
Participants are solely responsible for incidental costs. In calculating airfares, please use current fares obtained from travel agents or online services (e.g., Expedia.com, American Airlines) for your proposed dates. Requests for funding up to a maximum of $30,000 will be considered.
Workshop funding cannot be used to pay for indirect costs (e.g., utilities, fringe benefits).
