This programme funds excellent, policy-oriented UK research, aimed at addressing the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and advancing the UK’s Aid Strategy. It supports researchers in the humanities and the social sciences working to generate evidence on the challenges and opportunities faced in developing countries and respond to the Sustainable Development Goals. The Academy is particularly keen to encourage applications from the humanities in this round.


The aims of this programme are: supporting innovative research projects and collaborations; building our understanding of human and cultural contexts and how this can help inform practices and policies aimed at contributing to sustainable development outcomes; expanding the research base in countries and populations with high unmet need and low research capacity.
