The Newton Fund uses science and innovation partnerships to promote economic development and social welfare of partner countries. It does this through collaboration with partner countries and working with 15 UK delivery partners. The Newton Fund is also part of the UK's official development assistance (ODA).

Applicants need to consider if their proposed activities meet ODA criteria.
