CDPR Research Grant Success

15 May 2011

CDPR is delighted to announce that it has been successful in helping faculty members to secure funding for two large research projects at SOAS:

Members of the Development Studies department and CDPR have secured funding from the ESRC for a project entitled ‘Labour Conditions and the Working Poor in China and India’. The project, which will commence in September 2011, is led by Dr. Jens Lerche and involves a number of SOAS and external researchers in China and India.

Researchers in the Economics Department and CDPR (together with researchers at Leeds University and 13 other international partner institutions) are in the final stages of securing almost €8 million EU FP7 funding for research on ‘Financialisation, Economy, Society and Sustainable Development’. SOAS is set to receive around €950,000 of this funding over 5 years, with the project set to begin in August 2011.

CDPR is waiting to receive news on a proposal submitted to the EC for EU FP7 funding for a project entitled “New Perspectives on Development and Poverty”. The project is jointly led by CDPR/ SOAS and EADI (European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes). Other collaborators include IDS, Sussex and ISS, Netherlands as well as 10 other research institutes across Europe, North Africa, China, India, Brazil and sub-Saharan Africa.
