GCRF call for application: Reducing the impacts of plastic waste in developing countries

Plastic waste is polluting the land, rivers and seas, impacting the health and wellbeing of both people and the environment, particularly in developing countries. In response, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) invites proposals for interdisciplinary research projects aiming to understand the risks plastic pollution poses in Low & Middle-Income Countries and to explore which interventions, policies and regulations can mitigate these risks.

The programme is funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) at a maximum of £3.5m for each up-to-4-year project, expected to start in July 2020.

A Notification of Intent to Submit should be submitted using the online form no later than 20 January 2020.
