Funding research to improve sustainability and efficiency of campus operations

The SEED2SOIL 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.

Research topics identified for an RFP are endorsed by Sustainable Operations Working Groups (SOW groups) as being valuable to campus. Research proposals are encouraged to address topics beyond those identified, as long as the information requested and other findings are made available to Operations. Questions on research topics may be routed through Lissa Larson.

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.
