Event description

Description

The Open University invites you to an all-day Conference at our Milton Keynes Campus to share and discuss the Global Challenges Research Fund. With just over a year since its launch, and with the announcement of the general election in June, we want to explore what has been working up to now, what hasn’t, and how we can work more effectively to submit impact-driven, innovative new proposals. We are pleased to advise we will be joined by Sian Rowland, Senior Policy Manager at RCUK, who will bring us up to speed, outline what we can expect over the next 12 months within the new political landscape and answer any questions you may have. We are also delighted to have Dr David Newsome from King's College London, Professor Chungui Lu, Director of the Centre for Urban Agriculture at Nottingham Trent University and Professor Monioluwa Omolara Olaniyi, Dean of the Faculty of Sciences at the National Open University of Nigeria presenting.

The Open University's Professor Giles Mohan and Professor Parvati Raghuram will be presenting on Official Development Assistance Compliance. We have been successful in securing a number of GCRF grants, and are keen to share what we have learned so far.

We look forward to seeing you there!
