The aim of this competition is to support demonstration-stage projects that have the potential to improve lives of people living in lower income countries and emerging economies. It will support projects that address one or more of the global societal challenges recognised as the UN Sustainable Development Goals through development of innovative, market-creating products and services.

This is a two-phase competition. Phase 1 projects must explore the feasibility of running a demonstration project in phase 2 and applicants can use a human-centred design or technical feasibility approaches during this phase. A successful sub-set of phase 1 projects will be invited to apply for phase 2.

Funding has been allocated from the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), a £1.5 billion fund to support cutting-edge research which addresses the problems faced by developing countries. GCRF will address global challenges through disciplinary and interdisciplinary research and innovation, and will strengthen capability for research and innovation within both the UK and developing countries, also providing an agile response to emergencies where there is an urgent research need. GCRF forms part of the UK’s Official Development Assistance (ODA) commitment and will be awarded in a manner that fits with ODA guidelines.

  6. 6. Top tips for a good application GCRF, London, 03 September 2019
  7. 7. Fundamental 1 1. Is it a big enough market? Does it represent value for money compared to the investment requested? Will a 10% market share give you a return to justify the grant value that you are asking for? GCRF, London, 03 September 2019
  8. 8. Fundamental 2 2. Can the innovation be world leading? Is the idea sufficiently distinctive and strong to be successfully exploited in the UK and globally? Can you really not buy ‘it’ elsewhere at a reasonably comparable cost or get ‘it’ from a consultancy? GCRF, London, 03 September 2019
  9. 9. Fundamental 3 3. Is it at the right stage of development? It must be market driven, rather than predominantly a research project. Do you have a customer in mind for ‘it’, are they a partner on the application and if not why not? GCRF, London, 03 September 2019
  10. 10. Fundamental 4 4. Why should public money be used? Why not use company funds or raise additional finance via VC investment or a bank loan? Do you have a strong risk register, that isn’t just a paper exercise where everything’s nicely mitigated so as not to scare off the investor? GCRF, London, 03 September 2019
