GCRF and ODA research workshop

Location

Harrie Massey Lecture Theatre (inside the UCL Union building) | 25 Gordon Street (link Map)
London | WC1H 0AY | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

The launch of the £1.5 billion Global Challenges research Fund (GCRF) in 2016 has boosted interest and funding in research focused on the challenges faced by low & middle income countries. A growing number of calls that require research proposals to meet Official Development Assistance (ODA) have been released this year & we expect the frequency & scale of these calls to grow over the next few years.

In order to support researchers who are interested in applying for GCRF & other ODA research funding, we will hold an afternoon workshop to introduce the ODA rules as they apply to research funding; inform UCL researchers about the proposal review and negotiation process through the experiences of those UCL academics who have already been through this process, including links to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); and highlight some of the GCRF-funded research already being carried out by UCL researchers.

Open to all UCL staff.
