White Rose Workshop: GCRF Gender Network Plus Call

White Rose University Consortium would like to invite you to a workshop 1430 to 1630 on Thursday 14 February 2019 at The Diamond, University of Sheffield in order to discuss the recent ESRC GCRF Network plus call.

We will look at the details of the call, share areas of research interest and discuss the potential or interest in bidding. We will also explore the benefit or potential for  a White Rose collaborative response.

 

Please contact Claire Pickerden, if you would like to attend.

 

GCRF Gender and intersectionality and Education as a driver of sustainable development network plus

This call has two separate thematic areas of focus, and applicants can apply to either distinct strand.

Closing date 11 April 2019

  1. Gender and Intersectionality Network Plus – proposals of up to £4.75 million (UKRI contribution) and up to 48 months duration. 
  2. Education as a Driver of Sustainable Development Network Plus – proposals of up to £4.75 million (UKRI contribution) and up to 36 months duration. 

The successful network plus will be expected to: 

  • build an international, intersectoral network through which to promote the gendered and intersectional lens of each GCRF portfolio at local levels of study  
  • particularly encourage researchers, both local and international, who would not otherwise have considered the gendered and intersectional aspects of their work to do so eg conflict, climate change, sustainable food, clean water, urbanisation. 

Proposals should focus on the core issue of gender and intersectionality. Proposals should be intentionally broad, to enable a gendered lens to be applied to a range of areas, and for associated expertise and knowledge to be drawn together for maximum effect
