Strengthening Urban Engagement of Universities in Asia and Africa

The Strengthening Urban Engagement of Universities in Asia and Africa (SUEUAA) project funded by the British Academy under the Cities and Infrastructure programme of its Global Challenges Research Fund is led by the University of Glasgow includes international partners from Iran, Iraq, the Philippines, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.  It builds on earlier work, the Strengthening the Regional Engagement Role of Universities in Africa and Asia, funded by the Scottish Funding Council and the earlier PURE project within the PASCAL Observatory.

Challenging the Translingual Turn: Student-Teachers' Perceptions, Practices and Networks

This project, supported by the British Council, explores the potential and limitations of the translingual turn for TESOL student-teachers who move from their MA studies into the workplace. Now that we have established that language learners are always engaged in translingual practices, to what extent do teachers actively engage within the same translingual framework in their classrooms?

Centre for Sustainable, Healthy, and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods (CSHLH)

Poverty in and unsustainability of urban areas in the Global South has been a major challenge to researchers and policy makers for a very long time. International and national urban policies still tend to operate at a very general level with policy makers having limited knowledge about the unequal distribution of opportunities, benefits, and harm within the urban population.

Partnership to ensure the sustainability of a public health palliative care project in Bangladesh through community theatre

This is a GCRF AHRC-MRC global partnership grant funded from Dec 2017 – Jun 2019. Among the 160 million population of Bangladesh, it is estimated that 2.23 million people are currently living in over 9,000 slums. In the urban slums of Bangladesh, poverty makes the impact of life-limiting conditions devastating on family and community members. Communities that are already impoverished and marginalised are caring for each other without support. There are very few, if any, community palliative care projects focused on older people in urban slums around the world.

YOUNG_ADULLLT

YOUNG_ADULLLT was designed as a mixed-method comparative study on Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Finland, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom and focused on LLL policies for young adults – particularly those in ‘vulnerable’ positions – with the aim to critically analyse current developments of LLL policies in Europe. It was funded within the EC's Horizon 2020 programme within SSH - Young 3, and was led by the University of Münster in Germany. 

Geothermally Sourced Combined Power and Freshwater Generation for Eastern Africa

This project is researching and developing the capacity within local and community resources to generate water and energy from beneath the surface of the land. It is a large and exciting environmental sustainability project, starting in May for 3 years (the EPSRC contribution is £1,330,441.31). Mia's role will be focused on ensuring the social, community, and qualitative aspects of the research, engagement and education around the project.

Strengthening the Regional Engagement Role of Universities in Africa and Asia

Strengthening the Regional Engagement Role of Universities in Africa and Asia builds on the work of the PURE project and was funded by the Scottish Funding Council. PURE provided valuable insights into the possibilities of developing common, but regionally sensitive, methods for universities and regional governments to better understand the nature, quality and extent of their current engagements, and the potential for growth.

Building Sustainable Futures in Africa: Using Capacity-Strengthening Activities to Design and Pilot Methods for Cross-Disciplinary Research

The Sustainable Futures in Africa (SFA) Network project has since 2016 designed and piloted a range of activities that: (1) address the need for innovative methodologies that cut across the natural and social sciences, arts and humanities; (2) translate existing ODA-focused projects into opportunities for new networks of trust and commitment, and new lines of inquiry; (3) shape new opportunities for impact that address locally-articulated socio-ecological problems and challenges; and (4) underpinning all of this, generate research that cr
