last modified Jul 20, 2017 03:42 PM
Researchers are invited to attend a meeting about responses to the Research Hub Call convened by the Research Strategy Office. The objective of this meeting, which will be chaired by the member of the GCF advisory committee Bhaskar Vira, is to discuss specific ideas for the GCRF Research Hubs: key research questions, scope of the hubs, current and prospective partners to involve, outputs and impacts.

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 researchstrategy@admin.cam.ac.uk 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.

The Global Challenges Initiative is a Strategic Research Initiative of the University of Cambridge that aims to enhance the contribution of its research towards addressing global challenges and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
