The OICSD advances research on the complex challenges and opportunities posed by sustainable development in India. The Centre’s work rests on three pillars. First, it aims to bring together different academic disciplines and approaches to address a core set of sustainable development challenges in India. Second, the Centre develops future leaders by providing fully-funded scholarships to talented Indian graduate students researching on the scientific, social, political, economic and legal dimensions of sustainability in the country. Third, it seeks to translate academic research into policy-relevant actions and impacts an engages with a broad audience in the UK and in India.
The OICSD provides funding for talented Indian graduate students who would not otherwise be able to take their places at Oxford.
The OICSD offers a range of scholarships associated with various Master’s and DPhil degrees to support graduate students who work on the complex challenges of sustainable development in India.
The work of the OICSD is carried out by academics and researchers at the top of their fields, and supported by an expert Advisory Committee.
The OICSD takes a multidisciplinary approach to research, bringing a broader understanding to sustainable development concerns facing India and the wider world.
The OICSD has partnered with organisations like India Climate Collaborative, India Cooling Coalition and UPL, and also frequently collaborates with Oxford institutions for seminars and reading groups.
