Newton Mobility Grants
03 Ağustos 2018 - Cuma
Newton Mobility Grants awarded by the British Academy provide support for international researchers based in a country covered by the Newton Fund to establish and develop collaboration with UK researchers around a specific jointly defined research project.
These one-year awards are particularly suited to initiate new collaborative partnerships, between scholars who have not previously worked together, or new initiatives between scholars who have collaborated in the past.
The grants intend to strengthen the research capacity/capability of, and contribute to promoting economic development and social welfare in, the overseas country. The awards will also initiate the development of longer-term links between the overseas and UK researchers.
Awards might include a range of related activities, but mobility (in the form of visits and exchanges, etc.) should form an integral part of proposals. The main purpose of the funding is to cover travel and maintenance costs, although costs related to other eligible activities will be considered. Partnerships including a training element and involving scholars in the early stages in their career will be looked on favorably.
The British Academy Newton Mobility Grants cover researchers working in all disciplines within the social sciences and humanities.
The aim of the Newton Mobility Grants is to:
- Strengthen research capacity of the partner countries - by facilitating training and skill transfer from the UK to partner countries.
- Support excellent research - by linking the best researchers in the UK with the best researchers in partner countries and providing support for collaborative research.
- Establish long term research links - between both partners to ensure sustainable research capacity in partner countries and benefit to the UK research community in the longer term.
Both a UK-based applicant and an overseas-based applicant are required for this scheme. Both applicants must have
- a PhD or equivalent research experience,
- hold a permanent or fixed-term contract in an eligible university or research institute, which must span the duration of the project.
Collaborations should focus on a single jointly defined research project involving (or lead by) the two applicants.
Budget: Maximum 10.000 GBP.
Duration: Maximum 12 months.
Deadline: September 5th, 2018 (available for applicant and host institute).
* Awards must start not later than 31 January 2019.
