Global Challenges Research Fund

The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is 5 year £1.5 billion funding stream, announced as part of the Government's 2015 spending review.  The fund supports cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries through:

  • challenge-led disciplinary and interdisciplinary research
  • strengthening capacity for research and innovation within both the UK and developing countries
  • providing an agile response to emergencies  where there is an urgent research need

The GCRF is administered through delivery partners including the Research Councils and national academies.

To help shape Glasgow's response to the opportunities afforded by GCRF, an oversight group has been established.
