New Global Challenges Research Fund Opportunities

Globe by Simon Tong CC BY-SA-NC 2.0

A raft of new calls have been released in recent weeks under the UK’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) banner. You can find out more about them by following the links in the table below.

Several of the calls have restrictions on the number which can be submitted by the host institution, and these are marked with an asterisk (*). We will circulate details of any internal processes which apply via email but please contact us at an early stage if you are interested in developing an application for any of these calls.

Northumbria University has a GCRF Working Group and a network of staff with relevant research experience are available to provide guidance and support on bids to these schemes as they develop. Please visit our GCRF webpages to find out more.
