The Programme will reach across the six strategic GCRF Challenge portfolios (global health, education, sustainable cities, food systems, conflict and displacement and resilience), and calls will be launched throughout 2019.
Calls will be led via specific Research Councils on behalf of UKRI as a whole, and steered by challenge leaders.
