LIDC Interdisciplinary Seed Fund - CALL NOW OPEN

The LIDC Interdisciplinary Fund (formerly known as the LIDC Fellowships Scheme) aims to support new collaborative research projects in international development.



It is meant for collaboration 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.

The call is NOW OPEN - until 7th October 2016
