Please be informed that the UK Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund is calling for research proposals on “Cities and Infrastructure”. This is to support SDGs, especially SDG 11 “Sustainable cities and communities” then the proposals must address challenges in developing countries. The programme is run by British Academy.
Please see below texts from the call:
“The call invites proposals from UK-based researchers across all academic disciplines within the social sciences, the humanities, engineering, medical and natural sciences, to develop and lead interdisciplinary, problem-focused research projects that address the challenge of creating and maintaining sustainable and resilient cities in developing countries, recognising the need to interweave mitigation and adaptation. The Cities & Infrastructure Programme will fund research projects geared towards producing the evidence that will inform policies and interventions aimed at improving people’s lives in fragile or conflict-affected states or in developing countries.”
If you are interested in this opportunity please liaise with UK-based researcher(s) to explore the collaboration.
Deadline for applications: 14 June 2017
