The University is inviting applications for internal awards to support the UK Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).
The £1.5bn GCRF supports cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries. It forms part of the UK’s Official Development Assistance (ODA) commitment and is a key part of the UK’s overseas aid strategy.
The University distributes a block grant from Research England to support collaborative projects that brings together researchers in the UK with those in developing countries.
The deadline for full applications to the internal scheme for the 2020/21 financial year is Friday 23 October 2020.
