Current ResearchersBelow is a list of researchers funded by Tag:
Research grants are awarded by Tag Institute’s emerging scholars fund to external scholars, usually based at established universities, who propose to carry out a limited research project in an area of interest to them that is consistent with our aims. The research proposal will suggest an idea for integrating Judaic ideas or experiences within a social scientific research paradigm, thereby seeking to enrich his or her academic discipline.
Our Research Centre staff reviews applications and, if possible, will work with applicants to ensure their application is successful. A Tag Institute staff member will provide support and mentoring during the course of the research project, which is normally completed within a 6-12 month timeframe.
By contrast, action research projects are run by Tag Institute staff and deal with key areas that we are committed to developing over an extended period. The action research projects operate by coalescing Judaic scholars, leading academics and seasoned professional to foster a fusion of academic, professional and Judaic knowledge to enrich the development of practical interventions in specific areas.
This ‘action based research’ allows Tag to apply theoretical ideas and learn about the effects of those ideas when put into practice, which enables us to study the real impact our ideas can have, generating both theoretical and practical knowledge. By helping to enrich people’s lives through our practical efforts, it is our hope that the wider community will benefit from our efforts to blend Judaic wisdom and modern scientific methods.
Tag Institute has a sister organisation Tag International Development which deploys unique humanitarian expertise and proven social models to create sustainable solutions for developing countries.
