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 GCRF, we were delighted to host an international symposium to share best practice, develop new connections, and generate new research partnerships that help to tackle global development challenges.
