Large-scale research
funding for UCT
Researchers from UCT are included in two of 12 international
teams selected by United Kingdom Research and Innovation
(UKRI) to establish large interdisciplinary research hubs based
at leading UK universities that address the world’s complex
development challenges.
The research hubs are funded through
the Global Challenges Research Fund
(GCRF), which was set up by the
UK government to support research
that tackles the challenges faced
by developing countries. It offers
five years of large-scale funding for
initiatives that aim to make the world
safer, healthier and more prosperous.
The two hubs UCT is involved in were
chosen to be among the 12 successful
applicants out of a pool of some 380:
UKRI GCRF Accelerating
Achievement for Africa’s Adolescents
Hub, led by an interdisciplinary team
at Oxford University and UCT, aims
to discover which combinations of
services can most efficiently and costeffectively help adolescents achieve
their potential across multiple life
domains.
UKRI GCRF One Ocean Hub, led by
the University of Strathclyde, aims to
transform our response to the multiple,
urgent challenges that threaten the
health of the world’s ocean and its
contributions to human well-being.
