The University of Liverpool has awarded £123,258 to pump-prime 14 projects for research on challenges arising from Covid-19 in 15 low and middle income countries.
The projects address the short-term and longer-term consequences of Covid-19 including:
Projects span all three Faculties – seven in Humanities and Life Sciences, four in Humanities and Social Sciences and three in Science & Engineering.
Professor Anthony Hollander, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Impact said “The Covid-19 crisis is a global one which is affecting countries across the world. We are proud to be collaborating with low and middle income countries on research which is tackling the many challenges they face arising from Covid-19. This will help in some small way in ensuring that these countries stay on course to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals.”
The Covid-19 research forms part of the university’s Global Challenges strategy which sets out how we deliver research to benefit low and middle income countries and meet the UN SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). Funding is provided through the annual quality-related (QR) GCRF grant from Research England. This grant enables us to internationalise our research environment and research base through pump priming schemes, awareness raising and capability building events, hosting international visiting fellows and supporting the costs of large-scale research projects.
Professor Claire Taylor, Chair of the university’s Global Challenges Strategy Group said, “we were tremendously impressed by the level of interest and innovative thinking shown by our researchers from right across the university. A particular thanks to the professional services and finance colleagues who are helping to set these projects up in difficult circumstances.”
“The next pump-priming call for researchers will be in early June when the next round of the ODA Research Seed Fund opens. The call will be open to the full range of global challenges research (health, poverty, hunger, climate, clean water and the other Sustainable Development Goals) as well as Covid-19 proposals.”
Details of the fifteen projects are as follows:
