This call is for research projects aimed at pump-priming and pilot activities. Preference will be given to innovative and transformative projects. Workshops, conferences and capacity building activities may form a small part of proposals but should be supplementary to research. Specific calls for these activities will be launched in May (for events and activities scheduled between 1 August 2020 and 31 January 2021) and September (for events and activities scheduled between 1 February 2021 and 31 July 2021).

All activity must be ODA compliant, any proposals that do not meet this criterion will not be assessed by the panel. The application form includes several questions that will allow this to be assessed. However, applicants should consider this at an early stage. Full details of ODA compliance can be found on the Global Research website.
If you are unsure of this, or wish to discuss your project informally before submission, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief (150 word) lay summary of your proposal, and answers to the three ODA compliance questions:
- Which DAC list countries are involved?
- What development challenge/s have been identified in the DAC country/ies?
- What are the economic or welfare benefits that the project will bring to the DAC countries (and beyond)?
The PI(s) must be a current employee of the University of Oxford, holding an academic post, or PI on a current research contract which continues beyond the duration of the proposed project.
Please note: Many departments have internal eligibility criteria, approval processes and other guidelines which applicants should follow.

Please seek the endorsement of your head of department (or equivalent approval authority) before submitting the application.
