GCRF Networking Grants: Inviting Researchers from Developing Countries and UK to Address Global Challenges

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 seeking applications for its Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Networking Grants Program 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.

The Networking Grants will bring together novel combinations of perspectives to facilitate the development of high quality, interdisciplinary and innovative applications addressing the global challenges faced by developing countries for submission to other GCRF programmes.

Grant Information

  • 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.

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.

How to Apply

Applications can only be submitted online using the Academy of Medical Sciences’ Grants and Awards management system (Flexi-Grant®) via given website.
