Newton Fund Institutional Links Grants (deadline: 8th June)

Applications are invited for Newton Institutional Links with the aim to build UK-partner country research and innovation collaborations centred on shared research and innovation challenges which have direct relevance to social welfare and economic development.

Newton FundThis programme is designed to establish links beyond the level of the individual researcher and innovation practitioner, opening up opportunities for more sustainable, solution-oriented collaborations between academic groups as well as with the private and third sector (e.g. SMEs, NGOs, technology transfer offices and other not-for-profit organisations).

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.

Grants of  £50,000 - £150,000 are available for collaborations between the UK and Turkey, Vietnam, Mexico, Indonesia, Peru, Philippines, and Thailand.

Each proposal must have one Principal Applicant from the UK, as well as a Principal Applicant from the partner countries and all Principal Applicants must be Leading Researchers or Established Researchers.
