    Using new data collected through the SDG Action Manager and existing data from the B Impact Assessment, this call seeks to support research on the contributions of the business community to achieving the SDGs by 2030 and the impact that the SDG Action Manager can have on tangibly measuring, tracking, and improving these contributions.<o:p></o:p>

    Research proposals may be submitted by faculty, graduate students, or post-doctoral fellows working in traditional university settings as well as researchers affiliated with think tanks and other research institutes. Priority preference will be given to those located within the Global South. Teams may include researchers from outside the Global South and, in fact, international South-South or South-North collaborations, are encouraged. Research proposals are due no later than 11:59 pm New York Time on June 1, 2020.   <o:p></o:p>

    Proposals for full research projects up to $30,000 will be considered. South-South or South-North collaborations may request up to $40,000. The total funding available is $150,000 and we expect to fund up to 3 - 5 research proposals. Projects must be completed by June 30, 2021.<o:p></o:p>
