Leave a comment

The British Academy Sustainable Development Programme, open to UK researchers, will provide grants to interdisciplinary, policy-oriented UK research, aimed at addressing the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and advancing the UK’s Aid Strategy. The Programme will fund the evidence that will inform the policies and interventions that will improve people’s lives in fragile, conflict-affected states, or in developing countries.

Focusing on the areas of sustainable governance, sustainable growth and sustainable human development, it will:

  • fund grants that deliver research excellence with development impact, aimed at reducing poverty and advancing socio-economic development,
  • strengthen the evidence base on what works in addressing sustainable development goals,
  • provide the evidence and insights needed to enable policymakers to design and implement effective interventions in developing countries.

The Sustainable Development Programme will fund approximately 15 research projects of up to 16 months in duration, with the maximum funding for each project at £360,000.

Applicant deadline: 20 July 2016, 5pm
