Postponement of the 2020 Annual Meeting of the GRC

We regret to announce that the Annual Meeting for the Global Research Council (GRC) scheduled to take place in Durban, South Africa during 26-28 May 2020 has been postponed until next year. 

The co-hosts, the National Research Foundation (NRF) of South Africa, and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), along with the GRC Governing Board, have agreed to postpone the event in response to the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. 

The co-hosts and the GRC Governing Board are continuing to monitor developments closely and will announce a new date for the Annual Meeting in due course.  

The Global Research Council has also issued a statement calling for international cooperation to combat COVID-19, which can be found here.

An FAQ document has been developed, and can be found here.

Enquires from GRC participants should be sent to: grc@ukri.org
