About The Prince of Wales Global Sustainability Fellowship Programme: The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) has established The Prince of Wales Global Sustainability Fellowship Programme with an ambition to unlock the potential of the University to partner with business, government and finance institutions on real-world challenges and opportunities that must be addressed in order to build a sustainable economy.
This exciting new Programme offers Fellows the opportunity to develop and lead research projects of relevance to one of the defined topics. Fellows may have the opportunity to enhance their impact by teaching on CISL’s executive and graduate programmes, and/or supervising students studying for the Master’s in Sustainability Leadership and other CISL graduate programmes.
The first round of Fellowships is now open for applications with a second round following in September 2019. We are currently accepting applications for the following topics:
- Industrial transformation: How will industries, jobs and markets evolve in future decades in response to global challenges, and how should public policy act with business to smooth this path and ensure economic development is inclusive and sustainable?
- Social inclusion: How can companies support more equitable access to income, opportunity and livelihoods at a grassroots level?
- Health: How can companies become agents of improved wellbeing in low-income countries through preventing the causes of ill-health?
