Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)
Building Global Engagements in Research
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is inviting proposals to build global "best with best collaboration" by UK research centres. Grants of up to £500,000 each are available to increase the strength and productivity of your current international links, or build links in regions where none previously existed. The College is eligible but only one application per university will be permitted.
The focus of effort should be to enhance your current research programmes that address the objectives above and should use mechanisms such as workshops, research co-ordination, networking activities, short-term visits and programmes of staff, post-doctoral and student exchanges. Other innovative models of international partnership building are encouraged.
Grants must have a start date of 1 April 2012 and end by 31 March 2013. The deadline for applications is on the 1 March 2012. Further information is available from the EPSRC webpages.
