Dear Respected Researchers,
YBhg. Datuk Seri/Dato’ Seri/Datuk/Dato’/Datin/Prof./Ir./Dr./Tuan/Puan,
We are pleased to inform you that Newton Fund through UKRI GCRF is inviting Malaysian researchers to apply UKRI GCRF/Newton Fund Agile Response Call to Address Covid-19 individually or by collaborating with other researchers from the UK or researchers from middle or low income countries. Please refer to the list LMIC from OECD.
Since the grant is offered as rolling call, there is no closing date for the application. However, as the grant is an agile response, it opens to researchers who have experience of receiving or working on UKRI grants only. Researchers who have no experience on UKRI grants, can still work with researchers who have experience with UKRI grants from Malaysia/UK/DAC.
This agile response programme enables the GCRF and Newton Fund to build on their current portfolios addressing the Sustainable Development Goals in order to help mitigate negative impacts in developing countries of the COVID-19 outbreak. Proposals supported through this programme will contribute to the strategic aims of the 6 portfolio areas:
· Security Protracted Conflict, Refugee Crises and Forced Displacement
· Cities and Sustainable Infrastructure
· Food Systems
· Global Health
Universities UK International is offering assistance to international researchers who are interested to work with UK researchers. Please refer Universities UK International for reference.
Thank You. Wassalam.
