The British Academy has launched a new, competitive research funding call, the Cities & Infrastructure Programme, as part of the Global Challenges Research Fund.

The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is a £1.5 billion fund to support cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries through:​

  • challenge-led disciplinary and interdisciplinary research,
  • strengthening capacity for research and innovation within both the UK and developing countries,
  • providing an agile response to emergencies where there is an urgent research need.

The call invites proposals from UK-based researchers across all academic disciplines within the social sciences, the humanities, engineering, medical and natural sciences, to develop and lead interdisciplinary, problem-focused research projects that address the challenge of creating and maintaining sustainable and resilient cities in developing countries, recognising the need to interweave mitigation and adaptation. The Cities & Infrastructure Programme will fund research projects geared towards producing the evidence that will inform policies and interventions aimed at improving people's lives in fragile or conflict-affected states or in developing countries.

Application Process

Applications must be submitted online using the British Academy's electronic Grant Application and Processing (eGAP) system.

Application Deadline: Wednesday, 14 June 2017

Institution Approval Deadline: Thursday, 15 June
