Funded under the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), this highlight notice will develop research networks that build sustained international boundary crossing collaborations and equitable partnerships with Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs). Working across disciplines, these networks will enhance the contribution that arts and humanities research makes to international development and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. In particular, projects will be expected to address one (or both) of the following:
- development challenges, contexts and areas that are under-represented in the current AHRC portfolio;
- issues of gender, equalities, diversity and inclusion in international development.
Proposals under this highlight are expected to be highly internationally collaborative and the development and enhancement of sustainable international collaborations, particularly in LMICs, is a key aim.
