UKRI GCRF Collective Programme

The UKRI GCRF Collective Programme is a series of calls designed to enhance the overall impact across the six strategic GCRF Challenge portfolios:  

  • Cities and Sustainable Infrastructure
  • Education
  • Food Systems
  • Global Health
  • Resilience to Environmental Shocks and Change
  • Security Protracted Conflict, Refugee Crises and Forced Displacement

The Collective Programme is an interdisciplinary programme delivered by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and steered by the GCRF Challenge Leaders.

Whilst AHRC is managing or supporting some of the below calls, applicants from all relevant disciplines are encouraged to apply for any of the calls. Proposals should be challenge-led and interdisciplinary in nature notwithstanding which council is hosting.

Further details about each call, including guidance documents and timelines, can be found on the website of the research council hosting the call. Links to these pages can be found on the UKRI GCRF Collective Programme page

The full list of calls in each portfolio and details of the councils that are managing the calls can be found below.
