The British Council and FAPESP has launched a new five-year programme to encourage international research collaboration between ambitious young researchers from the UK and eighteen countries around the world.


The programme,British CouncilResearcher Links providesopportunities for early career researchers from the UK andinternationally to interact, learn fromeach other and explore opportunitiesfor building long-lasting researchcollaborations.


As part of this programme, a ‘call toaction was issued in June 2013 forleading researchers to proposethemes for bilateral workshops to beheld in one of these countries whichwill bring together early career researchers to discuss their researchand start to build internationalrelationships.


Successful applicant organisations from the UK and add country name are now recruiting early career researchers and welcome applications to attend the above workshop.


The workshops will provide a unique opportunity for sharing research expertise and networking. During the workshops early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their research in the form of a short oral presentation and discuss this with established researchers from the UK and partner countries. There will be a focus on building up links for future collaborations and participants selected on the basis of their research potential and ability to build longer term links.


The British Council and FAPESP will cover the costs related to the participation to the workshop, including: travel (both international and local), accommodation and meals. Costs for the visa will be covered; however participants will be responsible for making all the necessary arrangements.
