The Benefits of KE for Academics: Setting up SIDNet


A mission statement

A mission statement…

“SIDNET, the Sheffield International Development Network, exists to promote research and post-graduate teaching in the field of International Development. It has the aim of placing Sheffield among the UK’s top institutions in development teaching and research, and sees its strength and uniqueness in coming from an inherently interdisciplinary network which links development concerns to different and established elements of the social sciences (and other cognate disciplines). We see this approach as marking out an intellectual agenda which is productive in two significant ways:

  • It brings inter-disciplinarityto the study of development.

  • It encourages critical reflection on existing disciplinary positions and debates through engagement with theoretical and empirical work on, and from, the Global South.”


And some strategic priorities

And some strategic priorities:

  • To develop University of Sheffield’s suite of MA programmes in international development

  • To develop strategic linkages with other Centres in University of Sheffield, and with international development scholars elsewhere

  • To provide a stimulating and supporting environment within which research ideas can be exchanged

  • To develop new collaborative research within the group through joint grant proposals

  • To establish the network’s links to practitioners and non-academic users of our research
