New funding opportunity
|Title||Researcher Links Workshops|
|Deadline||9 June 2014|
|Value||Based on partner country chosen – see guidelines document for more details|
|Aim||The British Council is inviting proposals for workshops under the Researcher Links initiative. Leading Researchers are invited to propose themes for bilateral workshops to be held in one of the 18 partner countries (see below), which will bring together early-career researchers to discuss their research and start to build international relationships. Successful workshops will receive funding, and the applicants (Leading Researchers) will, with the exception of certain countries, be responsible for organising the workshop.
Proposals in any discipline/multidisciplinary area will be accepted (including from the natural sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities). However, some countries have priority areas, and only themes within these will be considered (see guidelines document for more details).
All Researcher Links-funded workshops will have the following three overarching objectives:
Country list 2014-15: Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam.
|Length||Workshops should take place between 1 October 2014 and 1 March 2015|
|Eligibility||Leading Researchers are eligible to apply (Leading Researcher is defined as being upper R3 and R4, as outlined by the EC in this document). Applications must be made on a bilateral basis between institutions in the UK and a partner country and must be led by two Leading Researchers; there is no restriction on nationality, however one of the applicants must be UK-based, and the second must be based in one of the partner countries identified above.|
