Current CR&DALL Projects

This section covers CR&DALL Projects currently running. A brief summary is provided - together with links where appropriate.

 

Local, place-based, and community-driven approaches to peacebuilding

The project, Local, place-based, and community-driven approaches to peacebuilding, is supported under the British Academy/Leverhulme Small Research Grant programme with funding of £9,803. Globally, post-conflict and transitional societies statistically relapse into violence and conflict within ten years (UNESCO, 2014) due to the state of fragility and crises conflicts create in their borders – the vicious cycle they are struggling to break away from. 

Employability in programme development (EPD): Establishing a labour market to higher education feedback loop drawing on local labour market intelligence

The Employability in Programme Development (EPD) project seeks to establish a feedback loop from the labour market to HEIs in order inform programme and course design to best support the employability of future graduates. It is funded by the European Commission from 2021-2023 under the Erasmus+ programme with a grant of €433,771. The project consortium is made up of five participating organisations.

Gendered Journeys: the trajectories of STEM students and graduates through higher education and into employment, in India and Rwanda

This project investigates how far, and in what ways, gender may have an influence in the progress of students through higher education, graduation and progression into skilled employment in STEM fields in India and Rwanda. At present, girls and women are markedly under-represented in STEM areas both as students and in the workforce in most countries across the globe. At the Higher Education level, only 35% of students enrolled in STEM studies internationally are women (UNESCO, 2017a). Addressing this problem is vital in ensuring equitable access to quality education and meaningful work, and is crucial for countries seeking to prioritise equitable economic development, speaking directly to UN SDGs 4, 5, and 6.

Educational Peacebuilding in Medellin and Acapulco: Understanding the role of education, culture and learning in responding to crises

This project funded within by the British Academy through the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy via the Global Challenges Research Fund from March 2020 to December 2021 seeks to create a detailed understanding of the infrastructure, engagement, resources and policies required to educationally transform a community in order to contribute to reducing the negative impacts of drug-related violence and crime.

The EU’s Role in the Implementation of the SDGs in Asia Pacific

The Jean Monnet Sustainable Development Goals Network brings together researchers, policy think tanks and Non-Government Organisations who share a primary interest in enhancing the effective contribution of the EU to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the Asia Pacific. It is supported by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

Social and Scientific Innovation to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals

The Jean Monnet Network examines the role of the EU’s Smart Specialisation in linking scientific and social innovation, and how this can deliver global action to address societal challenges. Smart Specialisation is a direct outcome of European integration and the EU’s economic, social, and environmental agenda for a future Europe. It links closely with the EU’s commitments to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The core question for the Network is: how has European integration enabled deep understanding of how regional innovation can deliver action on societal challenges in Europe and across the globe?

Participatory Futures

Participatory Futures is a GCRF “Challenge Cluster” project. The GCRF Challenge Cluster Grant programme asked us to identify new challenges through clustering current and previously funded GCRF research whilst also leveraging external expertise to accelerate impact, share knowledge, and build capability and capacity beyond GCRF.<--break->
