LIDC offers seed funding for development research projects across Bloomsbury Colleges

We are happy to announce the launch of the third edition of the LIDC Interdisciplinary Seed Fund (formerly LIDC Fellowships Scheme). 

The LIDC Interdisciplinary Fund aims to support new collaborative research projects in international development between academics from at least two different Bloomsbury Colleges – LIDC members (Birkbeck, Institute of Education, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, SOAS and Royal Veterinary College).

Grants of up to £6,000 per project are available to support innovative ideas for international development research that are inter-sectoral (e.g. between education and health, agriculture and environment, etc.) and/ or interdisciplinary (e.g. between political science and anthropology, economics and epidemiology, etc.). The programme is intended as seed funding to help collaborators across Colleges to develop new research areas, and runs on an annual basis.

Applications are accepted until 20 April 2015.
