Tackling global challenges starts with understanding a problem and its wider context, rather than jumping straight into a business plan or an idea for a quick fix. This competition asks you to select a social or environmental issue and to explore, probe, and research all the connecting elements and factors around it.
Available to doctoral and post-doctoral students (or other similar research position) at the University of Oxford. Applicants must submit proposals that align with the Centre’s research mission to advance theories of social entrepreneurship and its practical applications to address critical social, economic and environmental challenges
