First Indian-European research networking projects in the social sciences launched
Date:8/6/2012

The Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR) in association with the Deutsche For-schungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation), the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR), the UKEconomic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Netherlands Organi-sation for Scientific Research (NWO) have launched the first set of projects for networking and social science research cooperation between researchers in India and the four European countries.

The ORA scheme provides a straightforward mechanism for leading social scientists to obtain na-tional funding to collaborate with partners elsewhere in Europe, avoiding many of the bureaucratic obstacles and restrictions associated with other types of European funding.

The scheme is open to proposals in any area of the social sciences, resulting in an exciting portfolio of projects that will influence policy and push the boundaries of our understanding of individual and social behaviour.

This is the first multilateral social science research collaboration that India has entered into. The networking projects will rationalise and economise Europe's efforts of engaging with India to pro-duce high-quality, high-impact social science research addressing major global challenges including economic growth and development, energy and climate change, and health and well-being.

The first joint call announced under this India-Europe initiative in May 2011 resulted in six projects agreed for funding over a period of three years. All projects have an Indian partner and five have a UK partner and other European partners. The six projects awarded funding will cover areas of growing social concern ranging from ageing and wellbeing, bullying and pupil-safety, globally ac-cessible medicine to mapping the cultural authority of science, and climate governance.

The awards include:

"Mapping the Cultural Authority of Science across Europe and India"
