The University Grants Commission (UGC) on July 02, 2019, has approved a Scheme for Trans-disciplinary Research for India’s Developing Economy (STRIDE) launched by Ministry of Human Resource Development with an objective to broadly provide support to research projects that are socially relevant, locally need-based, nationally important and globally significant. 

The main objectives of STRIDE are:

• To identify young talent, strengthen research culture, build capacity, promote innovation and support trans-disciplinary research for India’s developing economy and national development.

• To fund multi institutional network high-impact research projects in humanities and human sciences.

The trans-disciplinary research is a team effort of investigators from different disciplines to create new conceptual, theoretical, methodological innovations that integrates and transcends beyond discipline-specific approaches to address a common problem. The STRIDE will provide support to research projects that are socially relevant, locally need-based, nationally important and globally significant. It shall support research capacity building and transformational action research that can contribute to national priorities with focus on human development. It shall support creation, development and integration of new ideas, concepts and practices for public good and strengthening civil society.
