The Global Challenges Research Fund Networking Grants is now open. The scheme will provide support of up to £25,000 to international networking events aimed at addressing global challenges and promoting interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers in the developing world and UK reserarchers.  

As a delivery partner for the Global Grand Challenges Research Fund the Royal Academy of Engineering is delighted to work in partnership with the Academy of Medical Sciences, the British Academy and the Royal Society to offer the GCRF Networking Grants.

The UK National Academies will work collaboratively across the GCRF delivery partners to ensure that these grants provide opportunities for researchers, drawn from a wide spectrum of disciplines and backgrounds, to develop new collaborations, improve interaction between UK researchers and those in developing countries and build communities of researchers that can submit high quality applications for other GCRF funding calls.
