GCRF Highlight Notice for International Development:  Follow on Funding for Impact and Engagement Scheme

The AHRC is pleased to announce this relaunched highlight notice under the Follow-on Funding for Impact and Engagement Scheme (FoF) funded as a part of the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).

The aim of this relaunched highlight notice is to encourage applications exploring innovative ways to enhance engagement with, and impacts from, research funded by the AHRC in one or more countries which receive Official Development Assistance (ODA) and/or which will contribute more broadly to international development.

The relaunched highlight notice will provide opportunities to submit collaborative applications for up to £40,000 (fEC) over periods up to 12 months. Proposals will be expected to involve equitable partnerships with ODA eligible Countries and/ or with development organisations and to explore unanticipated or emergent pathways to impact directly related to current or past AHRC-funded or co-funded research (including, but not limited to, projects supported under the GCRF and Newton Fund).

As well as meeting the requirements of the Follow-on Funding for Impact and Engagement Scheme, applications submitted under this highlight notice will need to meet the requirements of Official Development Assistance, including submission of an ODA Compliance Statement.

Applications which do not fit under this relaunched highlight notice can continue to be submitted to the Follow-on Funding scheme as usual.
