UKRI invites proposals addressing impacts of COVID-19

Funding is available for short-term projects addressing and mitigating the health, social, economic, cultural and environmental impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak

UKRI will support excellent proposals up to 18 months duration which meet at least one of the following:

  • new research or innovation with a clear impact pathway that has the potential (within the period of the grant) to deliver a significant contribution to the understanding of, and response to, the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts.
  • supports the manufacture and/or wide scale adoption of an intervention with significant potential
  • gathers critical data and resources quickly for future research use

There is no specific award range for this call. UKRI are interested in funding research of any scale that can demonstrate it will deliver impact in the project length.
