Funding call: Application of UV-LED to rural water systems

REACH Partnership Funding calls are designed to support novel approaches to water security and poverty research and policy that complement the core research conducted by the REACH programme.

Research as part of this ‘UV-LED to Rural Water Systems’ Grant will provide the recipient with an opportunity to develop their research in water quality and in partnership with the REACH programme. Their research will co-build knowledge on appropriate disinfection systems for professionally maintained rural water supplies in Kenya.



Awards will be made up to a maximum of £50,000 for the entire period. You can find out more about the funding call and how to apply in the applicant guidance note. Applicants are required to complete a due diligence checklist.

Proposals must be submitted to by 17:00 BST, 31 August 2020. All queries can be addressed to
