A new grant program called SEED2SOIL is a collaborative effort from the University of Utah’s Facilities Sustainability & Energy group; Planning, Design, & Construction; the Sustainability Office; and the Global Change and Sustainability Center. SEED2SOIL seeks to focus a wide array of campus expertise toward achieving ambitious improvements in the sustainability and efficiency of campus operations.
This program aims to leverage the world-class research capacity of the University of Utah to generate ideas and knowledge that can improve campus operations while also contributing broader knowledge and/or application. Funds realized from savings through campus efficiency improvements and upgrades will be made available for research grants to advance innovation and research-based decision-making at the U. It is anticipated that this RFP will occur twice annually.
