The Royal Society invites applications for its international exchanges scheme. This offers a flexible platform for UK-based scientists to interact with the best scientists around the world. Funds contribute towards travel, subsistence and research expenses, and can be requested for either a one-off short visit in order to explore opportunities for building lasting networks or for bilateral visits to strengthen emerging collaborations.
Applicants must have a PhD or equivalent research experience and hold a permanent or fixed-term contract in an eligible university or research institute for the duration of the project. Collaborations should be based on a single project involving the UK-based scientist and the overseas-based scientist. Collaborations with any country outside the UK are eligible for this scheme.
Applicants may request:
- up to £3,000 for one-off travel lasting up to three months;
- up to £6,000 for multiple visits to be completed within one year, including a maximum of £1,000 for research expenses;
- up to £12,000 for multiple visits to be completed within two years, including a maximum of £2,000 for research expenses.
Deadline: 20 Feb 13
