Read the UBC Advanced Research Computing blog post here

UBC’s Campus as a Living Lab (CLL) Fund Competition (2021-22) is now open. Proposals are invited from UBC Faculty & Staff to co-develop innovative, impactful and collaborative ‘living lab’ projects on campus. The competition closes on November 12, 2021.

This program offers Faculty & Staff a unique opportunity to incubate, test and demonstrate innovative research ideas in a real-word setting, embedded on campus lands or within its communities. The competition will provide funds up to $50,000 per project. Proposals are invited from across academic disciplines and operational Units at UBC.

CLL projects must embody the essence of a ‘living lab’; in that they must be centered on the on-campus demonstration of innovation. This definition covers a broad spectrum, including innovative programs, platforms, technologies, products, research methods, etc. CLL projects must demonstrate measurable impact on one of four priority areas - Climate Action, Resilient Systems, Sustainable Places & Communities, or Health & Wellbeing. The project period is April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023.
