Final week to submit funding applications for COVID-19 research

08 Dec 2020

This week marks the final week for applications to be submitted for the UKRI’s open funding opportunity for research and innovation proposals that address problems related to COVID-19.

The UKRI has provided a list of priority areas for funding to increase an applicant’s chances of submitting a successful entry.

If you have an existing UKRI standard grant or Global Challenges Research Fund grant, you have the option to re-purpose this by switching it to a priority area. This is quicker than making a new application.

The deadline to apply for business-led applications is 9 December 2020 11:00 UK time.

The deadline for research applications is 15 December 2020 16:00 UK time.

Find out if you can switch existing funding to a COVID-19 priority area.

Next year, applicants will be able to apply for new COVID-19 related funding and further details are available here, as well as information on visas for international academics and researchers.
