My winning proposal: Ask not what the GCRF can do for you…

Alison Bruce won a pair of Global Challenges Research Fund grants to build nuclear physics networks in Africa. To win, she adopted a mindset focused not on her abilities but on her partners’ needs, she tells Ben Upton.

The Science and Technology Facilities Council teamed up with the GCRF last year for a special edition of its 21st Century Challenges Exploration Awards, opening the door for Alison Bruce, a professor of physics at the University of Brighton, to chalk up her second win from the GCRF.

Her project, which was awarded £17,986, started in February and will come to an end in July.
