The British Council has re-opened the call for workshop proposals under the Researcher Links initiative

The British Council has re-opened the call for workshop proposals under the
Researcher Links initiative. We are inviting Leading Researchers to propose themes
for bilateral workshops to be held in one of the 18 partner countries, which will
bring together early-career researchers to discuss their research and start to build
international relationships.

Successful workshops will receive funding, and the applicants (Leading Researchers)
will, with the exception of certain countries, be responsible for organising the
workshop. Some countries have priority areas, and only themes within these will be
considered. Please read the guidelines document for details.

Country list (2013-2014)

Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Columbia, Egypt, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Mexico,
Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand,
Turkey and Vietnam.

Important Dates

Deadline for submissions - 9 June 2014.

Successful workshops must take place between 1 October 2014 and 1 March 2015


Leading Researchers are eligible to apply (see below). Applications must be made on
a bilateral basis between insitutions in the UK and a partner country and must be
led by two Leading Researchers; there is no restriction on nationality, however one
of the applicants must be UK-based, and the second must be based in one of the
partner countries identified above.

Leading Researcher is defined as being upper R3 and R4, as outlined by the EC in
Towards a European Framework for Research

The participants of the workshops must be early-career researchers, as defined
below, and must also be based in either the UK or one of the partner countries.

The term 'early career researcher' refers to researchers at the beginning of their
research careers. We would expect early career researchers to have been awarded
their PhD not more than 10 years prior to applying for to participate in a workshop,
but allowances can be made for career breaks or other extenuating circumstances. If
a researcher does not hold a PhD, but has research experience equivalent to a PhD
holder and works in a field where a PhD is not a pre-requisite for established
research activity, they will still be considered eligible.
