Congratulations to the winners of the UCL ISR/UCL Grand Challenge of Intercultural Interaction (GCII) Research Catalyst Grant call. 

Rodebay Greenland

The call sought applications for grants of up to £10,000 from UCL staff, as part of the 2014 ‘Stewardship for Planet Earth: Sustainable Resources & Governance – Evidence, Challenges and Solutions’ symposium, aimed at conducting innovative and cross-disciplinary research that contributes to the debate on Stewardship and the sustainable use of natural resources.

Catalyst Grants are aimed at enabling UCL researchers to develop realistic and relevant research partnerships across disciplines, and research strategies with the potential for significant national or international impact. 

The scheme will support the following five research projects from across UCL. Grant winners will have the opportunity to present the findings of the research at the November Symposium.
