IMEIS - GCRF Project Development Workshop

31st January 2018

3pm to 5pm

The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is a 5-year £1.5 billion fund from the UK Government to support cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries. The fund is a vehicle for the UK Government to deliver Aid to Low- and Middle-income Countries (LMICs) and the research it supports is framed around achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. More information is available via the RCUK GCRF web pages.

As many of the countries included in the DAC list and therefore relevant to projects under the GCRF are located in the Middle East or wider Arab world, IMEIS are holding a workshop to allow us think forwards about development challenges, relationships with in-country partners and approaches to co-production of research to engage with this funding stream. The objectives of the workshop are three-fold:

  • to facilitate the building of research networks across the University with related regional interests
  • to provide an opportunity to develop viable project ideas in advance of future GCRF calls
  • to identify ways in which IMEIS can act as a supportive framework for research grant applications in the future

Derman Christopherson Room, Calman Learning Centre
