Food and Health Research Using the Consumer Food Data System

RWJF and ERS are announcing a call for proposals (CFP) for researchers who will use one or more restricted-use data assets from the CFDS. We seek to develop a cohort of researchers from diverse academic disciplines and institutions who will produce policy-relevant research on food policy; food retail markets; consumer behaviors related to food purchases and diet; and USDA nutrition assistance programs. It is our hope that the resulting research evidence will inform RWJF’s goal of creating equitable access to nutritious food.

Attacking Networks of Tax Evasion: Theory and Evidence

Ability to raise sufficient tax revenues efficiently and equitably to fund public services is one of the central challenges in economic development. This problem arises partly because of inability to create the capacity to enforce taxes effectively, thus leading to increased tax evasion. Reducing tax evasion requires a detailed understanding of the drivers of tax evasion and the optimal allocation of scarce tax enforcement resources.

Collaborative Research: Regulating Electricity Markets: Impacts on Energy Transitions and Environmental Justice

While electricity generation is critical to modern economic and modern life, it also generates substantial pollution, which falls disproportionately on minority and lower income groups. The world is in the middle of two major transitions to cleaner sources of electricity generation: first from coal to natural gas and from natural gas to renewable energy. These transitions are occurring in a highly regulated environment, raising the question of how regulation affects energy transitions and for the distribution of pollution (environmental justice).

Research to Reduce Consumer Food Waste in the United States

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking applications proposing cutting-edge transdisciplinary research (integrating diverse disciplines such as behavioral science, psychology, economics, public health, and sociology) to develop, apply, and test innovative and creative community-engaged approaches/methods to reduce household food waste through prevention (i.e., not redistribution) in the United States (U.S.) in real world settings.

Earth Science Applications: Socioeconomic Assessments

This Earth Science Applications: Socioeconomic Assessments program element seeks to expand research, methodologies, tools, and capacity for assessments of the socioeconomic value from Earth science information for applications, including decision and policy-support issues and operational contexts. This program element solicits proposals for a consortium to develop and manage a set of activities toward these ends. The NASA Earth Science Division (ESD) is organizing this program element, and offices in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are co-sponsoring.
