XCEPT Research Fund

The XCEPT Research Fund enables local and international research organisations to pioneer research on conflict and peacebuilding.

The XCEPT Research Fund provides opportunities for organisations to conduct research on how conflicts connect across borders and how to improve responses. The Fund supports activities across different areas:

  • Satellite imagery/data procurement and analysis, working with our partner Satellite Applications Catapult.
  • Field data collection, both qualitative and quantitative, to support core research by XCEPT partners Chatham House and Conciliation Resources.
  • Emerging issues and geographies, with research focusing on priority issues and geographies, including gender and social inclusion.
  • Conflict response, examining how to break the confines of state-centric policy and planning to better address the transnational dimensions of conflict.
  • Responsive research, focused on rapid delivery, policy-relevant research that responds to crises.
  • Data fusion technology and innovative research methods, to bring new ways of working to conflict research.

Through the Fund, we aim to support local research networks through partnerships, capacity building and formal grants to ensure that our research is rooted in local expertise and insight.
