The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is a five-year £1.5 billion
funding stream, which forms part of the UK's commitment to support
cutting-edge research that addresses the problems faced by developing
countries. The fund, administered through delivery partners including the
Research Councils and national academies, seeks to address global
challenges through disciplinary and interdisciplinary research, strengthen
capability for research and innovation within both the UK and developing
countries, and provide an agile response to emergencies and opportunities.

GCRF has recently launched a funding call, inviting proposal from eligible
UK research organisations to establish and lead a number of
Interdisciplinary Research Hubs to address intractable challenges faced by
developing countries. The Collective Fund aims to “incorporate new
collaboration and partnerships in order to redefine how we approach
development challenges in innovative, transformative and inter-disciplinary
ways”. The application process has three key deadlines:

   1. Intention to Submit Survey (ITS): 29th September 2017
   2. Submission of Outline proposals: 9th November 2017
   3. Submission of full proposals (by invitation only): May 2018 (exact
   date TBC)
