As flagged on the Blog, UKRI are starting to announce details of calls from for their Collective Programme. New details have been added for calls here – with the majority being led via AHRC and ESRC. Calls that are open, or scheduled to open in January, include:
- GCRF Education as a driver of sustainable development Network Plus – led by ESRC, mandatory EoI deadline 11 March 2019 and full submission deadline 11 April 2019
- GCRF Health and Context – led by MRC, anticipated opening date 24 January, closing date 2 April 2019
- GCRF Equitable Resilience: ensuring resilience enhances the Sustainable Development Goals – led by ESRC, pre-call information available
If you are thinking about submitting to any of the calls, or have been invited to participate in projects led by other organisations, please contact your Research Development Manager as soon as possible for guidance and support.
UKRI Regional Engagement Events
To complement the calls and provide an opportunity to hear more about GCRF, UKRI are arranging a series of engagement events – further details here.
From UKRI’s website:
“UKRI are developing a programme of UK based GCRF engagement events which will take place January-March 2019. These events provide a timely opportunity to engage with the GCRF Challenge Leaders, for UKRI to provide an update on live and upcoming ODA calls/activities, and to discuss key topics e.g. interdisciplinary approaches, building equitable partnerships, and maximising impact.
These events are open to anyone with an interest in the GCRF and development research opportunities.”
We would encourage those of you who have an interest in any of the calls, or GCRF more broadly, to consider attending these events.
