Most research projects will be required to demonstrate a pathway to impact, or evidence that impact will be delivered. While GRCF and ODA project may have slightly different requirements in terms of impact, there are several useful guides on impact.
Most large international development research projects, such as those run by DfID, require a theory of change as part of their reporting requirements. A theory of change is a framework that outlines what change the research programme is expected to achieve, how it will achieve that change and how it will measure it. Large GCRF projects which include monitoring and evaluation should use a theory of change approach if appropriate.
Financial reporting at the end of the award will need to be completed with costs reported consistently with the activities as described in the application and award letter. Please also be aware of the terms and conditions of GCRF award, including additional terms which are added in by each Research Council depending on the call.
