The Tata Centre for Development Announces 14 New Research Projects, New Affiliation with Becker Friedman Institute.
The projects, led by nearly two dozen UChicago faculty and researchers across six schools and divisions, will add to TCD’s robust research agenda.
The Tata Centre for Development at UChicago (TCD) has selected 14 new research projects to launch in 2018. The projects represent a total of $1.6 million in funding directed to outstanding research projects and will be led by nearly two dozen UChicago faculty and graduate students from six different schools and divisions.
TCD’s affiliation with Becker Friedman Institute will strengthen the University’s long-standing commitment to India, which also includes the University of Chicago Center in Delhi, the Energy Policy Institute’s at Chicago - India (EPIC-India), and the South Asian Languages and Civilizations Department. TCD utilizes cutting edge research from across the Chicago economics community, coupled with resources to translate and disseminate rigorous ideas, to improves lives throughout India.

The new grants will expand TCD's research portfolio to include a wide range of issue areas: water pollution and measurement, climate change, education, air pollution, fiscal policy, human capital, land policy and more. In the tradition of Chicago economics, much of this research extends beyond the conventional boundaries of the economics profession and into areas where economics can lend new insights. Across all of this work, TCD will work with researchers to connect new ideas to policymakers, innovators, and entrepreneurs to ensure that research and pilot projects have real-world impact.
The TCD has been partnering with UChicago faculty and centers since its founding in 2016. More information on existing research projects can be found here.
