The Development Cooperation Centre of the UPV launches the ADSIDEO - Cooperation 2023 programme call, aimed at Academic and Research Staff (PDI).
In line with the social commitment of the Universitat Politècnica de València, the aim of ADSIDEO - Cooperation 2023 is to promote research in relevant topics for human development and international development cooperation, which contribute to fighting inequalities in the most impoverished countries.
Fighting inequality in impoverished countries
The ADSIDEO - Cooperation 2023 programme finances research projects oriented towards development studies and the application of technology for human development.
The programme's priority sectors are water and sanitation, economic growth, culture and science, rural development, agriculture and food security, education, gender, environment and climate change, democratic governance, health, Information and Communications Technologies and humanitarian aid.
The research will focus on Sub-Saharan Africa, the Sahel, the Maghreb, Latin America and selected Asian countries with low Human Development Index. The funded research needs to impact the most vulnerable people and groups and bring people to the centre of the interventions, contributing to eradicating poverty and inequalities.
The proposal's alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) goals, where research is identified as one of the main contributions of universities to the global challenges of society: climate change, poverty and inequalities, will be positively assessed.
In addition, on Monday, 18 September, at 11.00 AM, there will be an information session to solve doubts at the Development Cooperation Centre (Nexus Building, 4th floor).
The Development Cooperation Centre allocates a maximum of 80,000 euros to this call and establishes two modalities:
- Support for developing research projects: A maximum of 12,000 euros per project will be granted.
- Seed Projects: promoting preparatory actions for exploring and formulating future research projects in calls for more funding. A maximum of 4,000 euros per project will be granted.
The approval (or commitment to provide support if the project is finally funded) of the Research Ethics Committee of the applicant institution will be required for the modality of research projects and in the following cases: research involving people, vulnerable groups, minors, the use of personal data, environments of high ecological or historical value, situations of risk for researchers and research participants and import/export of materials.
