The Royal Society - China Joint Projects

(8 April 2005)

The Royal Society invites applications for its joint projects programme to fund travel and subsistence for a British scientific research group collaborating with a Chinese scientific research group. 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.

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.
