ProSPER.Net Joint Research Projects

Since its inception, ProSPER.Net member institutions have launched a wide variety of joint projects ranging from the creation of an online postgraduate programme in public policy and sustainable development practice to the integration of sustainable development in business school curricula.

For this year’s ProSPER.Net joint research project call for proposals, ProSPER.Net members are invited to submit joint project proposals for 2020 – 2021 with the aim of designing and conducting researches by taking a multi-disciplinary approach to integrate sustainable development into post-graduate education and curricula and various learning initiatives.

Research proposals should include an education component, exemplifying how Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) can be used to educate students and/or community members on the topic and the findings of the research. The following topics related to ESD are welcomed:

  • Water or Governance from the Perspective of Sustainability
  • Biodiversity and Eco-system Services
  • Disaster Risk Management
  • Climate Change
  • Traditional/Indigenous/Local Knowledge
  • Community Participation and Governance

Due consideration will also be given to any project proposal that incorporates the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on ESD. Due to the pandemic, online and distance learning modalities for education modules – such as online courses, online training videos, and online manuals – are highly encouraged outputs.

Funding amount per project:

Approved projects should be implemented within six months following approval and should be completed during the course of one year. Seed funding amount per approved project is up to USD 25,000.
