The purpose of this call is to provide institutional “pump-priming” funds to lay the grounds for future large scale, multidisciplinary, cross-country global nutrition and health research bids addressing issues of primary relevance to LMICs. It is expected that these funds will help develop new strategies in global nutrition and health research, within and across institutions and in partnership with LMICs.

The research supported through this call will contribute to the UK’s commitment to Official Development Assistance (ODA) to LMICs. A list of eligible countries can be found hereopens in new window. Applications must demonstrate the research to be primarily relevant to near-term or long-term benefits to the health or prosperity of LMICs. Applicants must provide evidence as to why the research is relevant, to ensure that the proposed plan is informed by the needs of affected populations. Further guidance on ODA and demonstrating ODA compliance in applications for funding is available via the RCUK GCRF webpagesopens in new window, in particular ODA guidance
