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.
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.
