GCRF

The Academy of Medical Sciences’ two-year GCRF grant is supporting six policy workshops and at least one academic from an ODA country to join the Academy’s international working group on multimorbidity.

Ongoing

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.

 GCRF is administered through delivery partners including the Research Councils and national academies. 

The Academy of Medical Sciences’ two-year GCRF grant is supporting six policy workshops and at least one academic from an ODA country to join the Academy’s international working group on multimorbidity.

 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.
