Together, we can achieve more.

Do you share our passion for creating a more sustainable future? Does your organisation use research to work towards the Sustainable Development Goals?

We are keen to work with a wide range of partners who share our interest in using research to support a more sustainable future for all. We nurture global partnerships and relationships so that we can exchange knowledge and develop new collaborative research opportunities. If you are interested in exploring how we can work together, please get in touch.

Our research


Investing in relationships

We recognise that developing genuine partnerships takes time. Cultivating long-term, equitable partnerships with a view to delivering innovative new research that addresses evolving and complex global challenges is essential and we invest time in building our networks. IGSD welcomes contact from those who feel our research, skills and expertise might be of benefit to their work, and we are particularly keen to hear from non-governmental organisations, government agencies, researchers, universities and other third sector organisations who share our interests. We welcome partners from all disciplines.

Whether you want to explore common interests, collaborate on a research project or invite us to participate in an event, you can find out more about our team and get in touch here.

Equitable partnerships

By establishing equitable partnerships with researchers and non-scientific stakeholders across the global North and the global South, IGSD works on challenge-led research projects that cross the boundaries of disciplines in the humanities, natural and social sciences, and achieve impact towards the SDGs. We are committed to fair and equitable partnerships in our own research and actively promote this.

Citizen science

We carefully consider how we can responsibly involve citizens in our research. Many of our projects include citizen science because we believe that, beyond improving our research, community involvement has the potential to empower communities and build resilience. Our participatory research methods are a fundamental part of our approach to knowledge exchange.
