Newton Researcher Links workshop grants - deadline 13 July 2015

Link to original call >>

If you are interested in applying in relation to OpenPlant, please contact Jenny and Colette.

The British Council, working with the Higher Education International Unit, have opened a call for proposals for workshop grants under the Newton Researcher Links programme, a part of the Newton Fund.

This element of Newton Researcher Links provides financial support to bring together a UK/partner country bilateral cohort of early career researchers to take part in workshops to:

  • build research capacity in developing economies
  • building links for future collaboration
  • enhancing the researchers’ career opportunities

The Newton Fund is part of the UK’s official development assistance programme. Through the Newton Fund, the UK will use its strength in research and innovation to promote economic development and social welfare of partner countries.


Deadline for applications: 16:00 UK time on 13 July 2015. Proposals submitted after the deadline will not be considered for funding.

The workshops must take place between 1st November 2015 and 31st March 2016.


Brazil, Malaysia, Thailand, Russia*.

*Russia is not a Newton Fund country and is a part of this call outside of the Newton Fund. The application process is the same, however there is no need to articulate the relevance of the application to economic development and social welfare where the partner country is Russia.
