UKRI-Southeast Asia Collaboration on Infectious Diseases

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is partnering with leading funders in Southeast Asia to support research focused on infectious diseases with epidemic or antimicrobial resistance (AMR) potential

UKRI aims to:

  • fund collaborative projects involving the UK and one or more partner countries to address the challenges of AMR and pathogens with epidemic potential of relevance to Southeast Asia
  • enhance existing and develop new sustainable partnerships between the UK and Southeast Asia research partners
  • strengthen research capacity in the Southeast Asia region through supporting long-term research relationships

Eligibility: Eligibility rules for this funding opportunity require that research teams are made up of at least one researcher based at an eligible UK institution and at least one research based at an eligible Southeast Asia (SEA) research institution

As this funding will be provided via the International Science Partnerships Fund (ISPF) Official Development Assistance (ODA) budget, all applications must include at least one researcher based in a Low- or Middle-Income country (LMIC).

Level of funding: Applicants may apply for up to £1,000,000 from UKRI. Southeast Asia funding partners will provide co-funding to support their national research teams.

Additional information: Funding partners may set up their own deadlines differing from the UK’s one.
