Grants Available to Tackle Social Challenges in Developing Countries – 13th November 2019 (UK)

Organisations can apply for a share of up to £9.3 million to trial innovations that tackle global societal challenges in low-income and emerging economies. The fund aims to encourage UK businesses to work with overseas partners to develop innovations that could transform lives in countries that receive overseas development assistance.

The Global Challenges Research Fund is split into 2 phases:

  1. Phase 1 is for feasibility studies.
  2. Phase 2 is for demonstrators.

In phase 1, project teams will investigate the feasibility of a demonstration project in a country that receives development assistance and build partnerships in that country. Successful projects will be able to apply for phase 2 funding to work with at least one partner in the relevant country on research and development and trials.

The maximum grant for phase 1 feasibility studies will be £60,000.

The deadline for applications is 12 midday on the 13th November 2019.
