SRI Idea Market Call for Proposals

Submission deadline March 19, 2022, 11:59 SAST

The Sustainability Research and Innovation (SRI) Congress is thrilled to invite you to participate in the SRI Idea Market, an exciting opportunity for students, young professionals, and innovators to showcase their sustainability research, advances, concepts, designs, prototypes, and products with the global SRI audience.

Expanding on the success in its inaugural year, the SRI Idea Market invites proposals for either a 3-minute video or a poster presentation. The Idea Market allows individual contributions to the SRI2022 program and is a great opportunity for anyone who would like to share their ideas and receive feedback, but was not part of an SRI2022 session proposal. Contributions from young and early-career professionals, indigenous groups, and individuals from low- and middle-income countries are especially welcome.

Submissions can be at the idea stage or can be developed concepts and results. Participants are encouraged to think outside of traditional scientific formats within their video or poster creations and to have fun brainstorming and developing their sustainability idea. We are looking for ideas and initiatives that demonstrate successful and/or innovative transdisciplinary work. These posters and videos can share best practices, lessons learned, or unique or alternative approaches to sustainability research and innovation.

Submissions will be made available for all registered SRI2022 Congress attendees to preview online before Idea Market sessions. All submissions will go through a competitive peer review process and there will be an award for the top rated video and the top rated poster.

All proposal submissions should address one or more of the four SRI2022 Congress themes: Nexus issues, New horizons, Different ways of knowing, and African science and innovation.

All posters and videos must be submitted through the SRI2022 submission portal to be considered.
