The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is a £1.5 billion fund by the UK Government to support cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries. Alongside the other GCRF delivery partners we are creating complementary programmes that:

  • promote challenge-led disciplinary and interdisciplinary research, including the participation of researchers who may not previously have considered the applicability of their work to development issues
  • strengthen capacity for research, innovation and knowledge exchange in the UK and developing countries through partnership with excellent UK research and researchers
  • provide an agile response to emergencies where there is an urgent research need.

GCRF has three challenge areas, which are a vision for change and not intended to constrain innovative approaches in other areas that also address these aims:

  • Equitable Access to Sustainable Development
  • Sustainable Economies and Societies
  • Human Rights, Good Governance and Social Justice
