UKCHASCAP is one of five projects in the Healthy Ageing Flagship Challenge Programme, a joint UK-China strategic initiative to support cutting-edge research and innovation partnerships that address global challenges for the benefit of all of humanity.

This project is funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC) through the UK Research and Innovation Fund (UKRI) for International Collaboration. 

UKRI provided £5 million in funding across the five projects, with Chinese partner projects receiving up to 2.5 million yuan each from National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), making this initiative the largest co-funded Fund for International Collaboration (FIC) activity between these two funders.
