Call for projects on well-being

Well-being, girls talking

LAUSANNE/CAMBRIDGE – What is the connection between people’s (experience of ) well-being and their relationships? This is a question that can be explored by those who are interested in a Call for Projects on well-being by the Indo-Swiss Joint Research Programme in the Social Sciences.

Proposals can cover a range of topics: From the study of concepts of well-being as a multidimensional conception and its (potential) application in India and/or Switzerland to research on factors and processes determining wellbeing. And from analysis of public policy and its effects on well-being in India and/or Switzerland to projects on flows and linkages between India and Switzerland, for example, migration, tourism, capital, commodity and resource flows, and their implications for wellbeing of different social groups in the two countries.

The Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation runs a series of bilateral programmes to promote research cooperation with a number of priority countries, India being one of them. The École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is in charge of this program. This is the second bilateral Call for Projects

For those interested, more information can be found on this website. And if you decide to respond to this call and would like to explore the subject from a Relational Thinking point of view, please do let us know!
