SANPAD South Africa-Netherlands Research Programme on Alternatives in Development
SANPAD is a collaborative research programme funded by the government of the Netherlands. The programma promotes development-related research in South Africa. It particularly aims to build capacity in those parts of the research community that have been disadvantaged in the past.
SANPAD invites South African research consortia to submit project proposals in collaboration with research institutions in the Netherlands.
Projects must fall within the following broad themes:
New approaches to economic development
Social development and the quality of life
Natural resources and their management
Culture, identity and the society
Democracy, state and civil society
There will be one call for proposals annually.
For further details, such as closing date for proposals, guidelines, and application form, see www.sanpad.org.za.
