11 EoI Assessment Criteria I/II Part I: Applicant Information Strength of the team Part 2: Case for Support Overall Vision for the Network in Vaccine R&D case - fit to the aims and scope of the call Does the Network aim to build an interdisciplinary community by drawing in researchers from a range of relevant disciplines and engaging relevant stakeholders including those from developing countries, where these add value? Does the Network aim to support innovative catalyst activities? Relevance to Official Development Assistance Does the Network proposal clearly address a vaccine R&D challenge of relevance to countries on the OECD DAC list?

12 EoI Assessment Criteria II/II Scientific case Does the Network seek to address a key scientific challenge in early vaccine R&D and present a compelling case for how the network will help address this How will the Network achieve its mission? Are the exemplar catalysts initiatives supportive of the network goals and are projects described of high scientific quality? Are the Network activities proposed likely to support members and lead to novel projects and sustainable collaborations?

13 Agenda Aims Process ODA

14 Increased funding to harness UK strengths in addressing Global Challenges The government has drawn on its ODA commitment of 0.7% GNI to provide support for a series of vehicles spanning the research continuum from basic through translational and implementation Global Challenge Research Fund ( 1.5bn; BIS) Newton Fund (BIS) DH Non- Ross ODA ( 400m) Ross Fund ( 1bn; DH/DfID) DfID

15 ODA research must directly and primarily benefit people on the OECD DAC Country List

16 What is ODA eligible research? Only research directly and primarily relevant to the problems of developing countries may be counted as ODA Research does not need to be solely relevant to developing countries, but developing countries should be the primary beneficiaries Primary beneficiaries should be developing countries but secondary benefits to UK can also be articulated Research should investigate a specific problem or seek a specific outcome which will impact on developing countries in the immediate or longer-term Proposals should articulate a pathway to development impact (even if outside the timeframe of the project) Applicants will need to explain how the network will directly and primarily address ODA priorities potentially through use of catalyst funds to address challenges in development of specific LMIC focused vaccines
