This award is currently available to international researchers that want to strengthen the research and innovation capacity by visiting or sending staff and students to the UK. The aims are 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 and their groups in partner countries and providing support for initial exploratory 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.

This scheme is funded by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills as part of the Newton Fund.
