Transformative Healthcare Technologies for 2050 (call pre-announcement and information day)
The UKRI GCRF Health and Context call is seeking proposals for interdisciplinary research addressing wider contextual factors contributing to the burden of infectious and non-communicable diseases (NCDs). These factors may include social, cultural, historical, and religious beliefs and practices, or wider biological, ecological and environmental factors. They are seeking to fund consortia conducting ambitious research that:
- goes beyond description to determine causal relationships between contextual influences and health
- develops or tests feasible interventions that are sensitive to or mitigate contextual influences on health.
Via the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), UKRI will support impactful, three-year research projects of value between £1-2 million (at 80% FEC for UK costs, 100% FEC for overseas costs). This call is being led jointly by the Medical Research Council, Economic & Social Research Council, Arts & Humanities Research Council, Natural Environment Research Council, and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, and applications may fall within the remit of any of, or across, these councils.

Deadline: Monday 22nd October 2018. Amount of funding: Up to £20,000 (must complete all spend before 31 July 2019).
Applications that meet the eligibility criteria of the University’s Impact Acceleration Accounts (the EPSRC IAA, the ESRC IAA, or the BBSRC IAA), should be progressed to those IAA funds in the first instance.
