Global Challenges Research Fund Networking Grants

The awards provide up to £25,000 to support international networking events aimed at addressing global challenges and promoting interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers in developing countries and researchers in the UK.

Key dates

The first round of the scheme is now closed.

The Panel will convene in November.

The next round will open in 2018.

 

The Academy of Medical Sciences is delighted to announce the inaugural call for applications to a new scheme to allow researchers from developing countries and the UK to forge new links and hold networking events to generate innovative and interdisciplinary research ideas to address global challenges. This support will enable these new networks to be better equipped to apply for larger grants offered by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) programme and other funding initiatives.

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 GCRF Networking Grants, available through the GCRF, which is part of the UK’s Official Development Assistance (ODA).  The GCRF is an initiative that aims to support cutting-edge interdisciplinary research that addresses the global issues faced by developing countries. The GCRF is administered through 17 delivery partners including the Research Councils, the UK National Academies, the UK Space Agency and funding bodies.

The UK National Academies will work collaboratively across the GCRF delivery partners to ensure that these grants provide opportunities for researchers, drawn from a wide spectrum of disciplines and backgrounds, to develop new collaborations, improve interaction between UK researchers and those in developing countries and build communities of researchers that can submit high quality applications for other GCRF funding calls.

This Programme is part of the Resilient Futures Initiative, funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund and delivered by the UK National Academies working together.
