TESF is a multi-million pound GCRF funded research programme that supports collaborative research to Transform Education for Sustainable Futures.
The programme addresses the role of education in climate action, decent work and sustainable cities. Cross-cutting themes such as poverty reduction, gender equity, ethics, inclusion, and indigenous knowledge provide contextual nuance to the research.
You can get involved
50% of our funding will be used to support a balanced mix of exploratory, innovative studies and pilot projects, workshops, and exchange fellowships within the four hub countries of India, Rwanda, Somalia/Somaliland and South Africa. Funded projects will reflect the range of our concerns geographically and topically. We will fund small (£10k), medium (£30k) and a handful of large (£100K) projects lasting between 12-18 months. Our call for proposals will come out in May 2020. Proposals will be expected to show how the co-production of new knowledge will contribute to the TESF Network’s objectives.
The support of the Economic and Social Research Council (UK) is gratefully acknowledged by TESF (award title ‘UKRI GCRF Transforming Education Systems for Sustainable Development (TES4SD) Network Plus’).
