University of Bristol, Victoria Rooms, 88 Queens Rd, Bristol BS8 1SA

Resolving the world’s most pressing development challenges requires a radically more ‘joined up’ approach to delivering research. The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) has provided a catalyst for UK institutions to collaborate across disciplines, sectors and continents in pursuit of real development outcomes.

Following a year of awards under the Global Challenges Research Fund, and led by the University Research Institutes, University of Bristol is hosting an international symposium to share best practice, develop new connections, and generate new research partnerships that help to tackle global development challenges. Find more information and register online.

Join us for a packed 3-day Symposium, focused on the broad themes of:

  • Food security
  • Energy in a developing context
  • Global Health
  • Poverty
  • Insecurity and conflict
  • Migration
  • Education

University of Bristol Researchers might also be interested in and are invited to apply to the University’s Global Challenges pump-priming call. The scheme supports activities that will underpin future research proposals that are compliant with Official Development Assistance rules. Projects are expected to cost in the region of £20,000-£50,000. Award activities and expenditure must be completed by 31 July 2018. Deadline for applications 12 noon, 17 January 2018.
