Campus Sustainability Incubator Fund: 2018

Living Lab
About the Incubator Fund

The MIT Office of Sustainability is pleased to announce a call for proposals [CFP] for the Campus Sustainability Incubator Fund, made possible through a generous gift from Malcom B. Strandberg.

The fund seeks to enable MIT community members to use the MIT campus as a test bed for research in sustainable operations, management and design. MITOS seeks to inspire and enable the continuous generation of breakthrough sustainability solutions to transform our campus, our city and the globe. It is in this vein that we invite you to join us in solving for a low carbon future, high performance design, resilient ecosystems, zero waste and other relevant challenges. The seed funds will enable students, faculty, and researchers to explore the physical facility and social context in which they are working, living and learning.

Submission Guidelines

The Campus Sustainability Incubator Fund will support small-scale projects that can demonstrate a link to similar interlocking solutions.  Projects that are designed at the individual, building, and/or campus scope that demonstrate modularity and connectivity as a manner by which to scale up, will be favored.  Additionally, we seek proposals for projects that uniquely integrate AI and Machine Learning. 


Thank you to those who submitted. The deadline was April 23, 2018.
