Research projects


Pincipal investigator, funded by Erasmus + ICM programme,  2017, total value £103,000.00

This is a staff mobility project between University of Huddersifled in the United Kingdom and five Higher Education Institutions in Sri Lanka. The project focuses on the need to develop research capacities amongst academic staff members of the two participating countries, in the field of Disaster Resilience.

Being one of the worst disaster effected countries in the world in the recent years, research capacity development is one of the most critical challenges facing Higher Ediucation Institutions (HEIs) in Sri Lanka today. In the past, allocation of resources and the attention given for research capacity development has been less than satisfactory in these HEIs. Growing the number and quality of researchers is therefore a strategic issue. In this context, this staff mobility programme between Sri Lanka and the UK focuses on some of the most pressing issues for researchers and universities, in the context of building and sustaining research capacity in disaster resilience.
