Sustaining cultural connections

EqUIP (EU – India Platform for the Social Sciences and Humanities) has pre-announced a new research call inviting scientists from European countries to collaborate with Indian partners to conduct research that addresses key global societal challenges.

The 'Sustainability, equity, wellbeing and cultural connections' call will build on the strong links and relationships that have been developed throughout the three year EqUIP project between European and Indian funding agencies. This will be the first initiative of its kind between Indian funding partners and a number of European countries.

With a total funding of €5.5 million, it is expected that six projects will be funded in total, with a start date of 2019. Researchers from India, Finland, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, and the UK are invited to apply. Further European countries may also be announced shortly.

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, well-being and cultural connections.

Further details on the pre-announced call will follow shortly. To read more, visit:
