Abstract

This report records the activities undertaken and lessons identified by the University of Eldoret, Kenya and Royal Holloway University of London, UK, during a networking partnership funded by a grant awarded by the Academy of Medical Sciences and Grand Challenges Research Fund (GCRFNG8/118). Activities described in this report took place between April 2023 and March 2024.

In the report, we highlight a series of challenges that prevent Global South partners who do not already have long-standing partnerships with Global North institutions from taking full advantage of UKRI and other sources of Global North funding available for networking and partnership grants.

We hope this report opens a dialogue that will begin to address the vicious cycle in which under-resourced and under-equipped Global South institutions cannot access research funding without prior evidence of robust research activity but cannot undertake research activity without funding.
