The British Academy have announced two more competitive research calls supported through the Global Challenges Research Fund with a deadline of 22 May 2019. As with all GCRF funded projects, activities must be ODA-eligible, focusing on addressing challenges faced by countries in receipt of Official Development Assistance.
- Urban Infrastructures of Well-Being – focusing on addressing the challenges of generating and maintaining well-being in the context of rapid urbanisation and infrastructure development. This call requires at least one researcher from the social sciences and humanities and one researcher from the engineering sciences.
- Heritage, Dignity and Violence – focusing on projects that will deepen the understanding of the relevance and importance of the historical context of development, culture(s) and heritage(s), in promoting sustainable peace and preventing violence.
In both cases, PIs must be based in the UK, but collaborations are encouraged with partners in countries in receipt of Official Development Assistance, and applications are expected to demonstrate equitable international collaboration.
Projects must be 21 months in duration, starting 9 September 2019, and the maximum size of project is £300,000.
