Claire is one of five new members appointed to the Group with varied backgrounds from academia and international development. They will be appointed for an initial two years to provide advice and support to the GCRF.
The GCRF is an initiative from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and operates across a number of delivery partners including: the UK Research Councils, the Higher Education Funding Councils for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the Academy of Medical Sciences, Royal Society, British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering, and UK Space Agency.
The main task for the Strategic Advisory Group is to provide independent advice on the strategic research priorities of the GCRF and ensure the fund is optimised to address the problems faced by developing countries. The group will also advise on the effectiveness of processes and mechanisms for delivery of the GCRF.
Professor Taylor is a specialist in Latin American culture, with a particular focus on digital culture, memory and conflict. She is currently working on a project on Conflict, Representation and Women Victims in Colombia. Claire also sits on the University’s Global Challenges Strategy Group which has institutional oversight of GCRF, Newton Fund and other research delivering impact in low and middle income countries.
