GCRF: guidance for applicants

These pages outline some of the key areas for consideration before submitting a GCRF application.

It is important to ensure that you have considered and addressed all the aspects of conducting research overseas with overseas partners, and that the necessary steps have been taken to understand the environment your collaborators are working in and the frameworks within which they operate.

Establishing the foundations

Application process

The standard University of York pre-award application process applies. Please note that for some calls there may be additional internal selection processes/demand management measures and information requirements to support the assessment of ODA compliance (see above).

Practical considerations

Advice and support

Cross-cutting departmental/central support is provided for GCRF calls (in particular for large interdisciplinary calls).

In the first instance, please contact your departmental reserach support administrator.
