The Academy of Medical Sciences has launched the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Networking Grants on behalf of the UK National Academies. The Networking Grants scheme is designed to generate new multidisciplinary research ideas addressing global challenges.
The Networking Grants are available through the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), which is part of the UK’s official development assistance. GCRF supports cutting-edge research and innovation that addresses the global issues faced by developing countries. It harnesses the expertise of the UK’s world-leading researchers, focusing on: funding challenge-led disciplinary and interdisciplinary research; strengthening capability for research, innovation and knowledge exchange; and providing an agile response to emergencies where there is an urgent research or on-the-ground need.
Applications are welcomed from overseas researchers based in a Development Assistance Committee (DAC) listed country, and UK-based researchers who are looking to form new challenge-led collaborations to address global challenges faced by developing countries.
Applicants should have a permanent position at an eligible UK or overseas DAC-listed institution, or a fixed term contract for the duration of the award. For more information, including eligibility criteria, what is offered and how to apply, please visit our Grants page
The current round of applications closes at 17:00 (GMT), Wednesday 6 September 2017
