SASNET helps develop research projects on South Asia at Lund University
SASNET already has experience in funding research projects after having funded the South Asia Media Project, coordinated by Andreas Mattsson. SASNET has now renewed its commitment to help develop exciting research projects at Lund University. The main goal with this initiative is to help researchers secure external funding for projects on South Asia at Lund University. This year SASNET has funded two such projects. The first project, entitled Comparative Environmental and Economic Analysis of Biomass Waste Utilization Strategies for Biofuel Production in Sweden and India, is based at the Faculty of Engineering (LTH). The project started in August and is led by Professor Pål Börjesson and Dr. Shveta Soam. The second project, which will start later this year, is entitled Cross-cultural and Cross-disciplinary Collaborations: Gender, Space, and Precariousness in Asia and is led by Professor Helle Rydström and Dr. Anindita Datta (University of Delhi).
