Global Challenges Research Fund Networking Grants

The Academy of Medical Sciences is delighted to be working with the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society to offer Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Networking Grants, available through the GCRF, which is part of the UK’s Official Development Assistance (ODA).

The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is a £1.5 billion fund, which supports cutting-edge research and innovation on global issues affecting developing countries.

The GCRF forms part of the UK Government’s Official Development Assistance (ODA) commitment and focuses on promoting the economic development and social welfare of developing countries.

The aims of the networking grants are to:

  • Pump prime new interdisciplinary partnerships between research communities, policy makers and practitioners in developing countries and in the UK.
  • Provide opportunities for researchers drawn from a wide spectrum of disciplines and backgrounds, particularly those who may not previously have considered the applicability of their work to development issues, to forge new links and generate new research ideas and innovative approaches to addressing global challenges.
  • Establish sustainable partnerships between UK researchers and those in developing countries to serve as a foundation for sharing knowledge and skill transfer to allow them in the future to conduct excellent research with impact.
  • Strengthen research and training capacity and capability in developing countries across a range of different disciplines.

    Benefits

  • This scheme is targeted at experienced researchers who are looking to form new international collaborations.

    The maximum amount available is £25,000 of which £5,000 can be used for consumables for obtaining pilot data, archival research or fieldwork. The remainder can be used to contribute towards travel and subsistence costs, costs associated with networking events, administrative support and access to technical support.

  • Grants cannot be used to pay for salary costs or to employ research assistants, PhD students or postdoctoral staff.

    Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicants can be from any discipline, and applications should focus on building a collaborative network. Therefore proposals should be submitted jointly by a lead overseas researcher from a developing country and a lead researcher based in the UK.

    To be eligible to apply, both applicants must:

    ♦ Have completed a PhD or have experience at an equivalent level

    ♦ Have proven research experience in their field

    ♦ Hold a permanent position at an eligible institution (in the UK or a DAC-listed country), or a fixed term contract for the duration of the award

    ♦ Lead applicants must not be affiliated to a private or commercial organisation.

    ♦ Applications will not be considered if there is more than one UK co-applicant or an overseas applicant not from a DAC-listed country.

    Deadline: 21 March 2019
