Global Challenges Research Fund: launch of £1.5m internal awards

March 29th, 2019

On Tuesday 2 April 2019 the University will launch the second round of internal awards to support the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).

£1.5m will be allocated to projects seeking to address sustainable development goals in developing countries.

Interdisciplinary, pilot and networking awards are available.

Dame Jessica said: “I encourage every researcher across all disciplines at the University to consider how we might work with the Global Challenges Research Fund and deliver interdisciplinary research that will strengthen capability for innovation within both the UK and developing countries. Our first round of internal GCRF funding gave the University the opportunity to support some truly inspirational projects, all underlining our commit to working with international partners and helping to build capacity in developing countries to tackle complex issues.”
