Call for Researcher Links Travel Grant applications

Last week the British Council launched a call for early-career researchers to propose an international research placement. Researchers that reside in the UK can apply for funding to spend up to 3 months at a university or research institution in one of the 19 partner countries, and those residing in one of the partner countries can apply for funding to come to the UK. All research areas are covered, including the natural sciences, humanities and social sciences, but some countries have priority areas.

The call guidelines, a list of the 19 countries and the application form can be found here. The deadline is 24 November 2013.

Please contact your School’s RKE Officer in RKE Operations if you are interested in this call.

Conference / travel grants

Conference / travel grants are an excellent way of securing some funding to attend conferences to promote your research, raise your profile and join/establish networks.

If you are a new researcher then these are an excellent way to start/develop your research career. Winning a handful of conference/travel grants will put you in a much better position to start winning larger, more prestigious grants, such as those from the UK Research Councils. They will give you project management experience and give future funders the confidence that you are capable of conducting good research and delivering a project.

Many funding bodies offer conference grants and you can do a search of Research Professional to identify current calls.

To discuss possible opportunities or for support in submitting a proposal contact the CRE Operations team who will happily advise and guide you through the process.
