The Academy of Medical Sciences Global Challenges Research Fund Networking Grants

Academy of Medical Sciences Global Challenges Research Fund Networking Grants for Developing Countries and UK 2018.

The
Academy of Medical Sciences is delighted to announce the second call
for applications for GCRF Networking Grant applications.

Application Deadline: 21st March 2018

Eligible Countries: Developing Countries and the UK

About the Award: The
Academy of Medical Sciences is delighted to announce the second call
for applications for GCRF Networking Grant applications. The scheme
allows researchers from across disciplines and from developing countries
and the UK to hold networking events, to forge new links and generate
innovative trans-disciplinary research ideas to address global
challenges. We expect that these new networks will then be better
equipped to apply for larger grants offered by the GCRF programme and
other funding initiatives.

Type: Grants

Eligibility: Applications
should focus on building a collaborative network and therefore should
be submitted jointly by a lead overseas researcher from a developing
country and a lead researcher based in the UK.

To be eligible to apply, both applicants must:

  1. Have completed a PhD or have experience at an equivalent level
  2. Have proven research experience in their field
  3. Hold
    a permanent position at an eligible institution (in the UK or
    a DAC-listed country), or a fixed term contract for the duration of the
    award

Lead applicants must not be
affiliated to a private or commercial organisation. Applications will
not be considered if there is more than one UK co-applicant or an
overseas applicant not from a DAC-listed country.

Number of Awards: Not specified

Value of Award: 

  1. This
    scheme is targeted at experienced researchers who are looking to form
    new international collaborations. The maximum amount available is
    £25,000 of which £5,000 can be used for consumables for obtaining pilot
    data, archival research or fieldwork. The remainder can be used to
    contribute towards travel and subsistence costs, costs associated with
    networking events, administrative support and access to technical
    support.
  2. Grants cannot be used to pay for salary costs or to employ research assistants, PhD students or postdoctoral staff.
