- Make use of International Science Partnerships Fund (ISPF) institutional support Official Development Assistance (ODA) grants where appropriate to help build your bid.
- Do not restrict thinking about gender equality to the research team—it must apply to outcomes as well.
- Engage with developments in the wider Ayrton Fund.
UK Research and Innovation’s Ayrton Challenge programme is now open, with up to £25 million to disburse for collaborative, challenge-led research projects supporting the transition to low-carbon energy in developing countries.
