The British Council has released a call for Researcher Links Travel Grants. These provide financial support for early-career researchers to undertake an international research placement to strengthen links for future collaboration, build research capacity in developing economies, and enhance their career opportunities.
Researchers who reside in the UK can apply for funding to visit a university or research institution in a partner countries, and those residing in one of the partner countries can apply for funding to come to the UK.
For this call, eligible partner countries are The Philippines, Indonesia and South Africa.
These awards are funded under the Newton Fund, which aims to promote the economic development and welfare of either the partner countries or, through working with the partner country, to address the problems of low-income and vulnerable populations.
Visits can be one to six months in duration, depending on the country.
The deadline for applications is 4pm on 19 September 2017. For more information, please see the website.
