The increased diversification of the ODA funding portfolio brings new opportunities for research institutions to engage in development-focused research through schemes like the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) and Newton Fund.


Over the next 6 months, the University of Dundee will ‘tune-in’ to a series of Research for Development (R4D) live webcasts, hosted by the University of Oxford and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), which are addressing important questions such as:


  • What does it mean to do research for development ethically and effectively?
  • How are researchers' roles and expectations changing to meet the demands for impactful research?
  • How should we engage with partners, decision makers and communities across cultural, gender and socioeconomic divides?
  • What new pressures do research managers and research officers face to meet compliance requirements?


We invite interested academics to join this conversation over lunch, and participate in a facilitated discussion after each webinar.

These meetings will provide a great opportunity to learn about what’s going on beyond Dundee, and meet other colleagues working in the “research for development” space.


To find out more about the series, and to access a video recording from the first seminar “Research for Development (R4D) 101. What is it and what ethical challenges does it pose?” visit Oxford Global Research.
