The Academy of Medical Sciences, British Academy, Royal Academy of Engineering and Royal Society have jointly launched a new call for Global Challenges Research Fund Networking Grants.
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. We expect that these new networks will then be better equipped to apply for larger grants offered by the GCRF programme and other funding initiatives.
This is an excellent opportunity for those who are starting to build networks with researchers and stakeholders in DAC List countries. The awards provide up to £25,000 over one year to hold networking events, supporting these collaborations.
The deadline for applications for this round is 21st March 2018. Successful projects must start between 1st July and 30th September 2018 and last for one year. Further details are available on the call page. Please contact us at an early stage if you are interested in applying.
