Global Challenge Research Fund (GCRF)

The Government has announced the establishment of the Global Challenge Research Fund (GCRF) (http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/funding/gcrf/), to support research that addresses challenges faced by developing countries. This extends to facility access, meaning that if your proposal is compliant with Official Development Assistance (ODA) guidelines, this fund may be used to support facility access, including travel and subsistence to/from the partner country for investigators and collaborators. Consequently, the CLF encourages such proposals.

If the research in your proposal is relevant, and will, or could be, conducted in collaboration with a developing country on the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) list (see link above), could you please provide us with additional information. Specifically, please include in your proposal key information that explicitly addresses the key questions below (maximum 1 additional page with your science case):

  • Which country/ countries on the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) list will directly benefit from this proposal?
  • What development challenge in these countries is the proposal designed to address, and what evidence demonstrates a credible need for this specific proposal?
  • How will the outcome of the proposed activities promote the economic development and/or welfare of a country or countries (not the individuals involved) on the DAC list?

     The CLF can provide additional guidance prior to proposal submission if required.
