May 2018 





Welcome to the Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement

The Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement aims to build on strong institutional engagement by the University with one of the greatest societal challenges of the 21st Century, that of human movement, dispersal, mobility, and migration.


Our goal is to create a trans-disciplinary centre of research excellence. This requires preparation of the intellectual ground as well as the establishment of genuine partnerships and collaboration. We do hope that you will get involved.

CamPo Collaborative Research Grants Scheme now open

In November 2017, Cambridge and Sciences Po in Paris signed an ambitious agreement to fund early-stage projects in the social sciences and the humanities. The CamPo Collaborative Research Grants Scheme is designed to provide seed funding to early-state collaborations between the institutions, to build the basis for new research initiatives which can lead to larger-scale opportunities/collaboration in the future.  The scheme is intended to cover academic disciplines in social sciences, arts and humanities across all six Schools of the University.

Further details on how to apply can be found here, the deadline for applications is 29 June 2018. 


Academic Seed Funds

The Planning and Resources Allocation Office (PRAO) has made £4.6 million available to seed new cross-School academic activities.  Bids for up to £500-600k of non-recurrent funding are now invited for a total of 6-8 new interdisciplinary academic initiatives that involve at least two Schools acting collaboratively. Applications should be ambitious with the potential to be transformative for the participating Schools, or for the University

Applications should reach a Head of School by 19 June 2018
