Applications call for Newton Fund Researcher Links Travel Grants 2020
Researchers that reside in the partner country can apply for funding to visit a university or research institution in the UK. These grants are funded under the Newton Fund, a UK Government initiative funded by the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), together with partner funders from around the world. The Fund aims to promote the economic development and welfare of either the partner countries or, through working with the partner country, to address the problems of low-income and vulnerable populations.
Researcher Links Travel Grants provide financial support for early-career researchers to undertake an international research placement to strengthen links for future collaboration, build research capacity in developing economies, and enhance the researcher’s career opportunities.
