Types of Funding
- Core grant funding is available for research into existing on-going public health interventions in humanitarian crises.
- Rapid response grant funding is a mechanism by which funding is ‘pre-approved’ and triggered later when the foreseen rapid-onset crisis occurs.
- Up to £3m of research funding is available in the Fourth Call.
- Grants will be for a maximum duration of 24 months.
- It is expected that successful applications will be developed and submitted by a partnership or consortium as appropriate to the research proposal. Consortia could include a variety of organizations (such as research institutions, operational organizations, governmental organizations, individual experts, and local non-government or community based organisations). Please note that R2HC research partnerships must include both a research institution and an operational humanitarian organization.
