International Development Research @ Cambridge


In a similar meeting on the 14th of June the following ideas were identified:

  • Resilience, Sustainability and Healthy Lives
  • Violence Reduction
  • Knowledge Infrastructure Inequity
  • Labour Informality

It is envisaged that all of the Hub proposals will address several Sustainable Development Goals, and be interdisciplinary. Those who wish to propose other ideas are welcome to do so, but please also suggest a possible PI who could lead the bid on the proposed topic. Those interested in attending please are asked to respond to by 21 July indicating:

  • Whether you can attend
  • Which Hub topic(s) you would like to contribute to
  • If proposing new ideas, who could be involved and who could lead the bid

The invitation to this meeting is also being circulated to all faculties, departments, IRCs / SRIs / SRNs, and everyone is welcome to attend.
