Global Challenges Research Fund
Resilient Futures Challenge-led Grants Scheme Notes
The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is a £1.5 billion fund announced by the UK Government to support cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries. The Fund forms part of the UK's Official Development Assistance (ODA) commitment which is monitored by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). ODA-funded activity focuses on outcomes that promote the long-term sustainable growth of countries on the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) list and is administered with the promotion of the economic development and welfare of developing countries as its main objective. All applications under this programme must therefore be compliant with these guidelines. The UK research base can make a significant contribution to addressing global challenges and the GCRF offers a real opportunity to make significant progress in many areas of research that will benefit developing countries.
