UKRI open call for research and innovation ideas to address COVID-19
Proposals are invited for short term projects addressing and mitigating the health, social, economic and environmental impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak.
There is no closing date – proposals can be submitted at any time.
UKRI will support excellent proposals of 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 award) 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
Proposals will be accepted from anyone who is normally eligible to apply for UKRI funding. Proposals should be sent through this route for any research or innovation relevant to the above regardless of funding Council or whether relevant to multiple Councils.
