RAO New international grant opportunity - UK-AU Networking Grant

New international grant opportunity - UK-AU Networking Grant

The Academy of Medical Sciences, in partnership with the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society, launched the first round of Networking Grants funded through the International Science Partnerships Fund (ISPF) on Wednesday 20 September 2023.

The Networking Grants scheme allows researchers from across disciplines and countries, working with researchers based in the UK, to hold networking events, forge new links and generate innovative transdisciplinary research ideas.

The awards provide up to £25,000 over one year to support collaborations between experienced researchers in other countries and the UK, and to hold networking events aimed at strengthening global research capacity. The awards are open to researchers in any area within the remit of the four National Academies, including natural sciences, mathematics, computer science, engineering, humanities, social sciences and medical research.

Applications should be submitted jointly by one UK researcher and one overseas researcher (Australia included), with multiple other countries able to participate as core partners or collaborators.

Applications for round one close on Thursday 9 November 2023.

Information on how to apply, including on eligibility requirements, is available on the UK Academy of Medical Sciences website.
