We foster international collaboration in the humanities and social sciences, and promote the sharing of international perspectives on global challenges.

More about the programme

Projects under this programme seek to develop new ideas and methods to bear on existing international challenges. Each project demonstrates an innovative and interdisciplinary partnership between researchers in the social sciences or the humanities on the one hand and counterparts in the natural, engineering and/or medical sciences on the other, yielding new conceptual understanding and policy-relevant evidence on questions of international significance.

The seven research projects supported under this round of the programme highlight the importance of collaborative engagement between disciplines and between communities of research, practice, capacities and borders. They seek to strengthen understanding of the challenges and opportunities in this regard, and engage with questions concerning the relationship between expertise, public understanding and policy delivery internationally.

 

This programme is funded by the UK's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
