Upcoming LIDC Event on developing a winning GCRF proposal: What will the event cover and how is it different to other events?

On 15th September we are holding an event on 'Developing a Winning GCRF Proposal'. The event is aimed at any academics at our member colleges interested  in applying for a Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) grant, but why should you attend?

The GCRF represents the largest single boost to research council funding in their history and will create an entirely new stream of development research funding across arts, humanities, social and natural sciences, with a focus on interdisciplinary research. The UK Research Councils will deliver through the GCRF £1.5b in research grants for international development research over the next five years. 


Our event will give academics the chance to hear from and ask questions to a panel of  past and present GCRF panel members with first hand experience of selecting winning proposals.

The event will focus on 5 key issues that the panellists often see in proposals:

  • Common mistakes and pitfalls made in GCRF applications
  • The GCRF impact agenda
  • How to build a Southern network
  • How to make your application stand out from the crowd
  • Interdisciplinarity- am I doing it right?

IMPORTANT: Please note that this event is only open to academics at LIDC member colleges (LSHTM, SOAS, BBK, RVC, UCL IOE, CITY and QMUL).

This event is free to attend but registration is required. Please register here.
