Launched

The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is a £1.5 billion fund announced by the UK Government to support cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries through:  

  • challenge-led disciplinary and interdisciplinary research

  • strengthening capacity for research and innovation within both the UK and developing countries

  • providing an agile response to emergencies where there is an urgent research need

     “To know there are challenges and barriers that you are facing in your region of the world and that you are not alone, so you can think about solutions together. It’s possible that collaborations that develop from the workshop can help in addressing these challenges on a broader scale."

Dr Chima Ariel Onoka from the University Of Nigeria (UHC 2019 Workshop participant and Steering Committee member) 

The Academy of Medical Sciences' GCRF grant has supported 21 policy workshops between 2016 and 2021.

These workshops aim to:

  • Enable partners (primarily National Academies) in ODA eligible countries to consider how scientific evidence can help address key global health challenges.

  • Build capacity in ODA countries for the provision of scientific advice.
