In 2013 the UK became the only G20 country to achieve the UN target of spending 0.7% of Gross National Income as Official Development Assistance (ODA). More and more ODA funding is being made available to HEIs, particularly via the Global Challenges Research Fund, to support cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries. What issues should research managers and administrators be aware of when applying for this type of funding? How can you support academics in considering and planning international research projects? Come hear the perspectives of an HEI dedicated to research in tropical diseases and a comprehensive Russell Group university. We aim to give participants an understanding of the International Development context in which funding opportunities are offered. We will then delve into some key issues through participatory discussion including encouraging impact-led and multi-disciplinary research, building and managing international partnerships, and operational considerations when working in developing countries.
