Royal Society - International Joint Projects
(1 April 2005)
The Royal Society is inviting applications for its international joint projects for research in Hong Kong, India and Japan. The programme is designed to enable international collaboration by providing a mobility grant for researchers to cover travel, subsistence and research expenses. The collaboration should be based on a single project including two teams or individuals: one based in the UK and the other based outside the UK. All sciences covered by the society are eligible.
Joint Projects are intended for UK and overseas scientists of proven research ability. Project leaders must be of at least postdoctoral status or equivalent. UK collaborators should be resident within the UK. EU citizens may apply provided they hold a permanent position in the UK. Non-EU citizens may apply provided they have held a permanent position at a UK institute for at least three consecutive years, exclusive of any period in full time education.
The scheme runs for two years. Grants provides a maximum of £6,000 per year. This may be used to claim the costs of travel and subsistence.
