Upcoming deadlines
The application deadlines for the following funds are approaching:

  • 9 October 2014: Leverhulme Trust Visiting Professorship The objective of these awards is to enable distinguished academics based overseas to spend between three and twelve months inclusive at a UK university, primarily in order to enhance the skills of academic staff or the student body within the host institution. It is recognised that Visiting Professors may also wish to use the opportunity to further their own academic interests. The over-riding criteria for selection are first the academic standing and achievements of the visitor in terms of research and teaching, and secondly the ability of the receiving institution to benefit from the imported skills and expertise. Priority will be given to new or recent collaborative ventures.
  • 17 October 2014: RCUK/CONFAP Research Partnership Calls. Research Councils UK (RCUK) and the Brazilian Council of State Funding Agencies (CONFAP) are pleased to invite applications for the Newton Fund RCUK-CONFAP Research Partnerships call.
    The aim of this call is to provide flexible short-term support for small-scale research and networking activities, with the objective of establishing sustainable collaborations between UK and Brazilian researchers, helping to build a community that will be better equipped to develop excellent research outcomes through this and future funding opportunities.
    Applications that address the following areas are particularly welcomed:
       Health
       Urban transformations
       Food energy water environment nexus
       Biodiversity and ecosystems resilience
       Economic development and welfare reform
    Applications across all research areas will also be eligible, as long as they make a strong case for UK-Brazil collaboration and meet the eligibility requirements associated with Official Development Assistance
