AHRC Follow-on Funding for Impact and Engagement Scheme GCRF Highlight Notice for International Development Introduction The aim of this highlight notice in AHRC’s Follow-on Funding for Impact and Engagement Scheme (FoF) is to encourage applications exploring innovative ways to enhance engagement with, and impacts from, research funded by the AHRC in one or more countries which receive Official Development Assistance (ODA) and/or which will contribute more broadly to international development. The highlight notice provides an opportunity to submit collaborative applications for up to £100,000 (fEC) over periods of up to 12 months. Proposals will be expected to involve equitable partnerships with Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICS - i.e. all countries on the DAC list of ODA recipients for 2018-20) and/or with development organisations and to explore unanticipated or emergent pathways to impact directly related to current or past AHRC-funded or co-funded research. Applications may be submitted to this highlight notice which follow-up inter-disciplinary projects involving arts and humanities researchers funded by the Research Councils under the GCRF or Newton Fund. This includes joint calls led by other Research Councils with co-funding from the AHRC (for example calls on Building Resilience, Forced Displacement, Global Public Health), provided that the follow-up proposal is led by, or has substantial input from, arts and humanities researchers and involves substantial content of relevance to the AHRC’s remit.
Applications can be submitted under this highlight notice for knowledge exchange, public engagement/participation (in LMICs), public policy, pathways to impact, non-academic dissemination, innovation, practice-based and commercialisation activities that arise unforeseeably during the lifespan of, or following, an AHRC-funded project and which have the potential to contribute towards international development and the welfare of people in LMICs. In addition to applications which follow-up projects funded since 2016 through the GCRF, we also welcome proposals from AHRC projects which were not originally undertaken with international development as a primary focus. In such cases there might be opportunities to explore, pilot or test the potential transferability, translation, tailoring, applicability or re-interpretation of research outcomes or pathways to impact in contexts relevant to international development. In addition proposals may be submitted to enhance the impact from AHRC projects which had some relevance to international development policy/practice or to ODA-recipient countries. Such proposals could, for example, seek to explore innovative new pathways to impact on international development policy or practice or explore opportunities for impact in other ODA-recipient countries and/or engage with additional/different audiences or user communities in ODA recipient countries in which the research was originally conducted. Inter-disciplinary boundary-crossing proposals are welcomed, including those proposals that cross Research Council remits. Where proposals extend beyond the AHRC’s subject remit, they should ensure that they bring arts and humanities research expertise, and draw on distinctive arts and humanities research concepts, ideas and/or approaches centrally in the development of the proposed Follow on Funding activities. In order to be considered under this highlight notice applications must draw significantly on relevant arts and humanities research literature, context and concepts or approaches and include significant research expertise within the remit of the AHRC. Applications may also be submitted to this highlight notice which follow-up inter-disciplinary GCRF projects or calls led by other Research Councils but co-funded by the AHRC (for example calls on Building Resilience, Forced Displacement, Global Public Health) where the follow-up proposal is led by, or has substantial input from, arts and humanities researchers and involves substantial content of relevance to the AHRC’s remit.
This highlight notice seeks to encourage innovative proposals for enhancing engagement with, and impacts from, research funded by the AHRC in one or more countries which receive Official Development Assistance (ODA) and/or which will contribute more broadly to international development. This highlight notice forms a part of AHRC’s wider activities under the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF)
Unless otherwise stated, the eligibility criteria as published in section 3 of the AHRC Research Funding Guide will apply. Strong ODA compliance is an essential eligibility criterion for consideration under this highlight notice. The potential added value of the proposed activities in terms of enhancing impact and benefits within LMICs and contributing to international development will be a key criterion in the assessment of applications. Guidance on Costs and Project Timescales Unless otherwise stated, project costs, minimums, maximums and timescales as published in the AHRC Research Funding Guide will apply. AHRC’s standard international co-investigator and international funding policy applies but with some additional provisions for the costs of work undertaken at an overseas organisation in Low or Middle Income Countries (i.e. all countries on the DAC list)
