International Social Science Council (ISSC): Research Grants

The ISSC is launching a global research funding programme, Transformations to Sustainability, to support social scientists in developing transformative knowledge networks which will include partners from countries (including at least one low or middle-income country) across different regions. They will conduct international comparative research on processes of social transformation to produce new knowledge and will draw on existing knowledge on social transformation and change.
