GCRF India-Oxford Initiative ODA thematic workshops call

The India-Oxford initiative (IndOx) is a cross-divisional platform at Oxford, promoting research and academic collaboration and exchanges between the Indian subcontinent and Oxford. IndOx has secured funding from the University to support three ODA (Overseas Development Assistance) relevant, multidisciplinary thematic workshops in Oxford. 

In partnership with the University’s internal Global Challenges Research Funds (GCRF) team, we are soliciting proposals from researchers from any Division of the University, to facilitate the organisation of ODA relevant, India (or countries in the subcontinent) focussed, multidisciplinary thematic workshops. Coinciding with the official launch of the Initiative on February the 28th 2020, these workshops are expected to held in the morning of the launch date. Up to £1,500 each is available for the organisation of three ODA relevant, thematic workshops in Oxford. A successful proposal will be strictly ODA relevant, will be collaborative in nature, will be multidisciplinary, and will focus on the impact and benefits to the Indian sub-continent. Each application must be led by applicants from two different Divisions. These workshops are expected to ignite imagination, promote debate and discussion, and generate cross-cutting ideas for collaborative research in partnership with academics in the Indian subcontinent.  

A call for inviting proposals is now live in IRAMS.
