The u’GOOD research programme seeks to accelerate research into the wellbeing of young people, particularly those who live in the Global South. More specifically, it seeks to draw on the recent exciting insights and advances in scholarship on relational wellbeing (RWB). u’GOOD seeks to: 1) centre relationality in studying and understanding human wellbeing, 2) foreground experiences and theory development from Global South contexts, and 3) recognise young people as a growing priority around the world, and as agents in solving problems which concern them.
The u’GOOD call for expressions of interest opened on 22 January 2024 and invites short concept notes that centre young people and relational wellbeing with a focus on: one or more of the four thematic areas of the Call, namely:
Principal investigators must be in possession of a PhD and may either be emerging researchers (up to seven years post-PhD) or established researchers (eight-plus years post-PhD) and must be based at a research institution (i.e. university or public sector research institute). Project teams must be based in one of the 12 focus countries (Colombia, Ecuador, Egypt, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Morocco, Romania, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, and Vietnam), be part of the diaspora of one of the 12 focus countries, or must show that they work in one of the countries even if they are affiliated to or based at an institution outside of the focus countries.
Project teams are expected to include non-academic research partners (e.g. from non-governmental organisations, community groups, industry, government agencies, etc.) and to foster wellbeing, co-creation, and co-learning. These partnerships must extend beyond the life and scope of the project. Non-academic institutions cannot lead the project or serve as PIs.
