The Academy of Medical Sciences: Inviting applications for ‘GCRF Networking Grants’ to organize networking events for pump-priming collaborations, generating new research ideas for addressing global challenges.

Funding brief: The Academy of Medical Sciences is delighted to be working with the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society to offer Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Networking Grants, available through the GCRF, which is part of the UK’s Official Development Assistance (ODA).  The GCRF is an initiative that aims to support cutting-edge interdisciplinary research that addresses the global issues faced by developing countries. The GCRF is administered through 17 delivery partners including the Research Councils, the UK National Academies, the UK Space Agency and other funding bodies.

The GCRF Networking Grants will be delivered as part of the Joint Academies Resilient Futures programme. The Academy of Medical Sciences 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.

The Networking Grants scheme is part of the Joint Academies Resilient Futures Programme delivered in partnership with the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society. The scheme offers 1-year awards of up to £25,000 to organize networking events for pump-priming collaborations, generating new research ideas for addressing global challenges. They hope that successful applicants will build on these newly established networks to apply for larger GCRF programmes funded by the RCUK, National Academies and other programmes such as the Wellcome Trust and Bill & Melinda Gates funded initiatives.
