Apply for Newton Researcher Links Travel Grants 2017: Strengthening Links for Future Collaboration!

Deadline: 13 June 2017

The British Council is currently inviting applicants for its Newton Researcher Links Travel Grants 2017 with an aim to enhance and strengthen links for future collaboration, build research capacity in developing economies and enhance the researchers’ career opportunities.

Objectives

  • Support international development-relevant research – Travel Grants are intended to support research areas relevant to the economic development and social welfare of partner countries.
  • Contribute to capacity building of early career researchers – The proposal should include a description of the capacity building potential of the project (both for the individual applicant, and other potential beneficiaries), and the longer term impact that the project could achieve.
  • Establish new research links or develop existing links – Travel Grants are intended to either support new links, or to develop existing links with the potential for longer term sustainability. Applications to return to the research group where the applicant carried out their PhD research or have previously taught will only be considered if they clearly demonstrate the latter.

Challenge Areas

  • Agriculture, (e.g. irrigation, crop yields)
  • Climate and environment, (e.g. climate change, green technology, sustainable development, ecosystem services, resource scarcity)
  • Sustainable energy for all
  • Education research and innovation for development
  • Economic growth, (e.g. equitable growth, financial sector development, private sector development)
  • Health, (e.g. HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, neglected tropical diseases, child mortality, maternal health)
  • Water and sanitation
  • Food and nutrition (including food security)
  • Demographic change and migration
  • Rural and urban development
  • Infrastructure (including civil engineering, information and communication technologies, big data for social and economic development)
  • Humanitarian disasters and emergencies, disaster risk reduction
  • Resilient and connected communities
  • Governance, society and conflict, (e.g. transparency, accountability, effective institutions, land and natural resource rights, poverty alleviation, social development, structural inequalities, violence and security, peace building, civil society)
  • Development-relevant data collection, quality and access (including administrative data and macroeconomic statistics)

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicants must be based either in the UK, or in the partner country, and be affiliated with a recognised publicly funded research establishment or public or private Higher Education Institution. For-profit organisations are not eligible to receive any grant funds.
