£2000 grant research to understand green attitudes and behaviour in the workplace
Proposals are invited for a research grant of £2000 to support a research project that aims to “green” an organisation. For example, an initiative that attempts to change attitudes and/or encourage environmentally sustainable behaviour in a particular organisation. The research proposal must relate to a new piece of research that is not already being funded.
Applicants will need to have a minimum of an MSc (or equivalent), demonstrate that they have the necessary skills and experience to do the proposed research and to be a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS). Applicants do not need to be Occupational Psychologists or a member of the Going Green Work Group (GGWG). Applicants will be bound by the BPS Code of Ethics and Code of Human Research Ethics. It should include a requirement to have obtained ethics approval when possible e.g. if the research is being done in a University – then university research ethics committee approval may be needed.
Supervision for the research will NOT be provided. The successful applicant will have to report periodically to the GGWG panel on the progress of their research project. Successful applicants will also have to informally present their research to a GGWG panel in October, 2012 prior to giving a formal presentation at the GGWG conference scheduled for 8th November, 2012.
A formal research report will be required, to be delivered to the GGWG committee, no later than 28 days after the date of the 2012 GGWG conference. Also, it is expected that the funded research will be of sufficient quality and interest to be publishable, either in an academic or practitioner journal. The GGWG expect funded projects to have both practical and academic significance.
