The Economic and Social Research Council, under the Global Challenges Research Fund, invites proposals for its call for new models of sustainable development. This supports interdisciplinary research which increases the understanding of new models of economic development that can help address the development challenges reflected in the UN’s Agenda 2030.
The aim is to study new institutional frameworks, policy approaches or business models that are emerging and what can be can learnt from them, and whether there is potential to transfer and apply successful initiatives or reforms to different contexts or environments, potentially scaling them up where appropriate. Proposals are invited under two broad themes:
1. Transitions towards sustainable and inclusive societies;
2. Decent work for all
