International Development Research @ Cambridge

 

Newton Researcher Links Workshops bring together early-career researchers from the UK and a partner country to make international connections that can improve the quality of their research.

Once funded, grants are available for early-career researchers in the UK and the country hosting the workshop to attend.These grants are funded under the Newton Fund, a UK Government initiative funded by the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), together with partner funders from around the world. The Fund aims to promote the economic development and welfare of either the partner countries or, through working with the partner country, to address the problems of low-income and vulnerable populations.

Workshops can be proposed between the UK and Brazil, China, India, Jordan, and Peru.

Applications must be made collaboratively:

  • Leading or Established Researchers as defined by the EC can apply to be Principal Applicants.
  • Each proposal must have one Principal Applicant from the UK, as well as a Principal Applicant from the partner countries listed above.
