We would like to draw your attention to a call for projects within the Open Innovation in Science Impact Labs. The "Action for Sustainable Future (ASF) hub", a cooperation of the Ludwig Boltzmann Society with the University of Applied Arts Vienna, is looking for key projects within the framework of this call for proposals, which are oriented towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN and develop practical solutions with high social relevance and impact. In these projects, citizens* should be actively involved in the project design, combining both artistic and scientific strategies and findings. In order to allow citizens* with little project experience to participate in the call program, the submission process for projects will take place in two phases. Until June 30, 2021, ideas from different social fields can be submitted. Applicants will receive support for project submission and implementation from the ASF hub. Complete project proposals can be submitted until 30.09.2021.
