Funded as a part of the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), the Urgency Grants Pilot is an open, responsive mechanism through which arts and humanities researchers can respond to unanticipated urgent research needs. The call is now open to applications addressing the Covid-19 pandemic and associated international development challenges and impacts.
The primary focus of this scheme is to provide an accelerated route for funding projects where there is a time-limited window of opportunity to conduct research or deliver project impact/outputs. Applications must demonstrate how the project meets the urgency requirements of the scheme.
The closing date for expressions of interest is 31/10/2020. Projects will receive up to £150,000 of the full economic cost (fEC), and projects should be up to 12 months in duration.
