Call for Application: Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Networking Grants

Application Deadline: 6 September, 2017

The Academy of Medical Sciences in partnership with the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering, and the Royal Society, 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.

Grant Details

  • There will be funding available for 40 awards per year of up to £25,000 for the networking activity.
  • Start date must be within a certain time period (must be between 1 January 2018 and 31 March 2018).
  • Awards are available for up to one year. Should the budget not be spent at the end of the award period, applicants may be able to apply for a no-cost-extension.
  • Grants cannot be used to pay for salary costs or to employ research assistants, PhD students or postdoctoral staff.

Eligibility Criteria

Applications should focus on building a collaborative network and therefore 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.
