sandbox event

The Sandbox Meeting serves three purposes: (a) clearly communicate to potential grantees the goals of the research funding; (b) bring researchers and community organizations with related interests and complementary skills together; (c) produce, during the meeting, proposal outlines that can be guided to full research proposals. At the sandbox meeting, prospective grantees will participate in strategic planning sessions with a facilitator provided by SJIPH.

During the meeting, facilitators and potential grantees will collaborate on project ideas and goals to develop proposal outlines. The goal for the Sandbox Events is to provide a collaborative rather than competitive environment, where community and academic partners also have the opportunity to connect and build relationships.
