Workshop Funds - Researcher Links - July 2015

Funds to create and strengthen academic collaboration between UK and Uruguay

Research is GREAT

International cooperation in research has become essential. Collaboration between researchers of different cultures and backgrounds can help improve and enrich the outcome of research projects.

Researcher Links Workshop Funds, offered by the British Council seek to connect researchers that are in the early stages of their careers in Uruguay and the United Kingdom. This will establish international connections that enrich the quality of their investigations as well as gradually improve research capacity in both countries.

  • Priority Areas: The allocation of funds will be based on Uruguay’s priority areas (see attached file)
  • Applicants must justify the relevance of their project for the social and economic development of the country.

How the programme works

Proposals for workshops must be submitted jointly by Senior Researchers of both participating countries: one from Uruguay and one from the United Kingdom. Based on the proposals received, British Council will evaluate the most suitable one. Senior Researchers responsible for the selected workshops will then open a call for young researchers interested in participating.
