Detailed Description

The Academy of Medical Sciences in partnership with the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering, and the Royal Society, has launched its third call for Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Networking Grants Program with an aim to support cutting-edge interdisciplinary research that addresses the global issues faced by developing countries.

The scheme allows researchers from across disciplines and from developing countries and the UK to hold networking events, to forge new links and generate innovative transdisciplinary research ideas to address global challenges.

Grant Information

  • This scheme is targeted at experienced researchers who are looking to form new international collaborations. The maximum amount available is £25,000 of which £5,000 can be used for consumables for obtaining pilot data, archival research or fieldwork. The remainder can be used to contribute towards travel and subsistence costs, costs associated with networking events, administrative support and access to technical support.
  • Grants cannot be used to pay for salary costs or to employ research assistants, PhD students or postdoctoral staff.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicants can be from any discipline, and applications should focus on building a collaborative network. Therefore proposals 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.
