Target Audience: Academic, Research and KE staff interested in working with developing country partners

This sociable event will provide information about aid-funded opportunities for collaborative research and knowledge exchange with partners in developing countries, including research institutions, Universities, local and national governments, businesses, community based organisations and consultancies.

As we aim to increase the impact of our international activity, government aid can provide resources and routes to policy impact. Strathclyde benefits from a loose network of academics with interest and experience in developing countries. This mutually supportive network allows for the development of multi-disciplinary programmes, such as the Malawi Programme.

The International Development Portfolio at Strathclyde has won over £5million in aid funding, and we continue to seek new partners to expand this work. Key funders include:

  • Scottish Government
  • UK Department for International Development
  • Foreign and Commonwealth Office
  • British Council
  • African Development Bank

This event will introduce staff to the approaches used to secure this funding.


  • Learn about opportunities for research and KE activity supported by Aid Organisations such as the UK Department for International Development and the World Bank
  • Understand the procurement processes for such opportunities
  • Learn about Strathclyde’s approach to building collaborative partnerships for International Development
  • Networking with Strathclyde staff with experience in international development
  • Gain introduction to the range of support available from professional services for ID activities

Delivered By: Jane Andrews, RKES


Format of Event: Information session, discussion and networking lunch
