This is the second call for the Flexible Research Fund from CCG. The first was held in 2022 and there are plans to hold more in coming years. The Climate Compatible Growth (CCG) programme’s Flexible Research Fund (FRF) has four main objectives:
The Fund is demand-led, and is designed to respond to new opportunities identified through the CCG programme’s engagement with national stakeholders in partner countries; international organisations; the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO, the funder of the CCG programme); and the CCG programme’s research strategies. The CCG programme is led by Loughborough University and implemented through partnerships with academia, business, and non-government organisations. The FRF is a funding mechanism for research that will provide tangible and impactful benefits in CCG countries. The topics in this second FRF call are tailored to focus on four of CCG’s current priority countries: Ghana, India, Lao PDR, and Viet Nam.
Deadline is 23.55 (UTC) 14th September 2023
Below is a list of the six call topics. Each proposal should only focus on one of these topics. Further information on the topics, including timescales and budgets, can be found in the grant specification document [below]:
