Public Health Program- Sex Work, Health, and Human Rights in EuropeOpen Society FoundationsEuropeGrantSocial Sciences; Social Justice; Social Activism; Human RightsNovemberThe Open Society Public Health Program invites concept forms from civil society organizations and networks that seek to advance the health and human rights of sex workers in Europe.

Marginalized by stigma and criminalization, sex workers face enormous obstacles to realizing their human rights, and oppression has led to extreme levels of violence, disease, and exploitation. Justice and health systems routinely fail sex workers, and at times compound their marginalization through harmful law enforcement practices and insurmountable barriers to health care. Sex worker organizing is sometimes vilified, further exacerbating problems related to workplace health and safety. The myriad of health challenges sex workers face cannot be addressed squarely within the health system, and the structural—and often political—determinants of sex worker health extend far beyond health care.

This call provides two tracks for funding: unrestricted organizational support for organizations that primarily work on sex workers’ rights;
project-based support for organizations whose mission extend beyond sex workers’ rights, or for organizations that already receive organizational support from the Open Society Foundations. Solicitation Link

International Biodiversity ProgramWeeden FoundationChile; Bolivia; RussiaGrantPhysical Sciences; Life Sciences; Biodiversity; Ecology; VariesSince its inception, the Weeden Foundation has had a strong interest in conservation work internationally. Roughly 30% - 40% of total annual grant expenditure goes to projects outside of the United States, a percentage range that has not changed significantly over the past two decades. This global perspective came about partly through a recognition that most of the planet’s biodiversity is found elsewhere, coupled with an understanding that an American conservation dollar goes much further when spent on the ground in Chile or Russia. To the Weeden trustees, these opportunistic conditions far outweigh the risks typically associated with international grantmaking. Solicitation Link

NSRDEC Broad Agency Announcement: Textile TechnologiesArmy Contracting CommandGlobalGrantEngineering; Technology; Electronic Wearables; Fibers; ElectrotextilesRollingThis Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is intended to fulfill requirements for scientific study and experimentation directed toward advancing state-of-the-art technologies and/or increasing knowledge and understanding as a means of eliminating current technology barriers. This BAA DOES NOT focus on specific systems or hardware solutions. This BAA identifies NSRDEC research/exploratory development areas of interest and provides prospective offerors information on the preparation of proposals along with proposal evaluation factors. The Government may award purchase orders, contracts, grants, cooperative agreements, or other transactions against this BAA. Below are two areas of interest for the smart textiles community. See the full BAA for all R&D opportunities.
Multi-Functional Materials (PG 110)
There is a strong interest in the new and growing field of “wearables.” The wearables field is of interest to the NSRDEC relates to the integration of electronic capabilities into textile materials, combat clothing and combat field equipment worn by Warfighters. Grantees will perform exploratory research on the development of novel multi-functional materials that have significant impact on Warfighter load and increase sustainability in the field.

High Performance Multi-component Fibers (PG 112)
There is a need for research and development of novel fibers to create woven and nonwoven textiles for Warfighter and first responder protection and sustainment. Specifically, novel optical, high strength, electronic, flame resistant, and reactive (chemical, biological) fibers are of interest. Novel optical fiber research and development could involve efforts related to the creation of fibers for friend vs. foe identification, optical communication systems, and optical sensing. High strength fiber R&D should relate to the creation of melt processable fibers for soft and rigid armor; transparent fiber reinforced composites for transparent armor; or structural composites for load carriage, shelters, or other Soldier System applications. Investigation of nanofibers produced through islands-in-the-sea technology for high strength, impact resistant composites is of interest. Electronic fibers for use in, for example, electrotextiles should be melt processable, conducting, shielded, and durable. There is specific interest in developing a flame resistant elastomeric fiber that can be woven into an undergarment and wicks away moisture.
