Transforming Systems through Partnership India grant call now open.
We are excited to announce that a new grant call under Engineering X Transforming Systems through Partnership (TSP) is now open.
To solve today’s most pressing development and sustainability challenges, academics must work with industry, government and the public to build trust, design appropriate solutions and scale their uptake. The TSP programme achieves this by catalysing partnerships between universities, large companies, SMEs, startups, civil society and more to address the sustainable development goals.
In partnership with India’s Department for Science and Technology, this grant will focus on:
- Clean energy
- Affordable health care
In addition to grant funding, awardees will join the TSP community and gain access to capacity building and networking events, and opportunities to collaborate with awardees in other countries tackling similar issues.
Applications open: 6 July - Applications close: 29 August 4pm BST
This scheme is funded by the UK Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT), under the International Science Partnership Fund.
TSP Programme Objectives
Our objectives with this programme are:
- Challenge-led research and innovation that uses engineering to address sustainability challenges in India and globally.
- Partnerships in course design and delivery to equip the next generation with skills to address sustainable development challenges.
- Collaboration and knowledge exchange that creates a strong evidence base for building better systems for the world we want to live in.
Note: we encourage application inspired research with potential for tangible benefits and outputs for society, rather than early stage or exploratory research.
