Convocatoria Reino Unido, Fondo para la Investigación en Retos Globales (GRCF): Challenge Clusters

Información general

El GCRF, Fondo para la Investigación en Retos Globales del gobierno del Reino Unido tiene un presupuesto de 1,500 millones de libras esterlinas para apoyar investigación que aborde desafíos de países en desarrollo. El Fondo abrió la convocatoria para la creación de consorcios “Challenge Clusters” para financiar propuestas de investigación que reúnan dos o más proyectos que actual o anteriormente se han financiado por el Fondo, y presenten nuevas maneras de abordar grandes retos globales que no parecen tener solución. Los colaboradores de los proyectos pueden incluir empresas privadas, organizaciones del tercer sector por ejemplo, organizaciones no gubernamentales (ONG) u organismos públicos, asociaciones filantrópicas, departamentos gubernamentales, gobiernos locales y autoridades reguladoras, entre otros.

Se pueden consultar los más de 800 proyectos que el GCRF ha financiado para identificar la creación de posibles consorcios y desarrollar los proyectos de investigación. Esta convocatoria parte del hecho de que por sí solo, cada proyecto no puede abordar los grandes desafíos globales por lo que se alienta la creación de propuestas acordes con los principios de asistencia oficial para el desarrollo (ODA) de toda la gama de disciplinas académicas. En México existen 24 proyectos financiados. Al final de este aviso podrá ver la lista de los mismos pero le invitamos a revisar la plataforma con todos los proyectos pues podría identificar otros de su interés y proponer la ampliación del proyecto al territorio mexicano.  

La convocatoria prevé dos etapas. La primera aportará fondos iniciales hasta por £150 mil libras esterlinas por proyecto (20 proyectos aproximadamente) y hasta por 12 meses. Tras evaluar los resultados de la primera etapa, se asignarán fondos que pueden ser entre £ 1 millón a  £2 millones de libras esterlinas, para 6 a 8 proyectos durante los siguientes tres años.

Fecha límite: 24 de septiembre de 2019.
