London International Development Centre (LIDC) was created in 2008 to facilitate innovative research in international development across the University of London Bloomsbury Colleges, cutting across sectoral, disciplinary and institutional barriers. The first conference was held in 2013. We have facilitated projects to the value of over £25 million and have held hundreds of public events. Our membership network is at least 2,500 strong, including students, staff and alumni from across 5 member colleges. The LIDC Conference, held every two years, offers its members a platform to discuss best practice in interdisciplinary research projects in international development, engage with one another, and develop new project and training ideas. The conference also coincides with the Award Ceremony of the LIDC Interdisciplinary Seed Fund that offers small grants to support new interdisciplinary projects in international development at Bloomsbury Colleges.
