AHRC issues further Highlight Notice for Research Networking proposals in International Development

An initial highlight notice for networking applications relating to international development closed on 31 May 2016 and attracted a positive response with over 25 applications submitted and around 15 new networks expected to start in late 2016. In the light of this positive response, and following feedback about the time required to develop internationally collaborative networking proposals which meet the aims of the highlight notice, the AHRC has decided to issue a further highlight notice with updated guidance.

As well as encouraging the development of new applications it is hoped that this second highlight will provide more time for those individuals who were interested in the first highlight notice but unable to complete applications before it closed. It also complements other previous AHRC thematic GCRF calls, the AHRC GCRF Area-Focused Network-Plus call and recent RCUK GCRF collective fund call on ‘Growing research capability’.

This highlight notice is intended to encourage the development of research networking proposals which explore the contribution that arts and humanities research can make to challenges, policy and/or practice relating to international development. It also seeks to support the development of sustained international boundary crossing collaborations with Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) which receive Official Development Assistance (ODA) (details are in the Highlight Notice Document) and/or with organisations which play an important role in supporting international development.

In order to be considered under this highlight notice applications must be submitted by research organisations before 1600hrs on Tuesday 28th February 2017.
