The Arts and Humanities Research Council, under the Global Challenges Research Fund, invites applications for its research networking scheme highlight notice. This encourages the development of research networking proposals that seek to build sustained international boundary crossing collaborations and equitable partnerships with low- and middle-income countries to enhance the contribution that arts and humanities research makes to international development and the UN sustainable development goals. Proposals are sought under the following themes:
•development challenges, contexts and areas that are underrepresented in the current AHRC portfolio;
•addressing issues of gender, equalities, diversity and inclusion in international development.
Inter-disciplinary boundary-crossing proposals are welcomed, including those proposals that cross research council remits. Where proposals extend beyond the AHRC’s subject remit, they should ensure that they bring arts and humanities research expertise and distinctive arts and humanities research concepts, ideas or approaches centrally into the development of relevant crossdisciplinary fields.
