EqUIP Call for Proposals: Supporting Research on Sustainability, Equity, Wellbeing and Cultural Connections

Deadline: 30 November 2017

The EU-India Platform for Social Sciences and Humanities (EqUIP) is pleased to announce its first research funding call with an aim to bring together a number of social science and humanities funders in India and Europe to support excellent and innovative research on sustainability, equity, well-being and cultural connections.

Research proposals should focus on societal challenges facing both India and the respective European countries, with suggested themes including, but not limited to, sustainability, equity, wellbeing and cultural connections. Funders strongly encourage interdisciplinary approaches across the social sciences and humanities (SSH) to address the themes of this call. Other disciplines can also be involved in proposals as long as overarching focus remains rooted in SSH.

The aims of this EqUIP call are to:

  • Support excellent SSH research that demonstrates the potential for academic, societal and economic impact.
  • Bring together the European and Indian SSH research communities around global challenges of mutual interest and importance for EqUIP partners that are of relevance to this call.
  • Enhance understanding of challenges facing economic development and social welfare work jointly towards identifying solutions to these challenges.
  • Support inter-disciplinary approaches for addressing areas of sustainability, equity, wellbeing and cultural connections as well as intersections between these areas.
  • Build on the relationships developed over the last two years of EqUIP, and on existing experience, to enhance trust and develop processes amongst funding organisations for multi-lateral European-Indian collaboration in the social sciences and humanities that goes beyond this call and creates a platform for lasting research collaborations.
