The Southeast Asia Science and Innovation team is seeking applicants for Collaborative Development Awards.

As part of the UK-Southeast Asia Knowledge Partnership, the Southeast Asia Science and Innovation team is seeking applicants for Collaborative Development Awards.

The awards are intended to support visits or short secondments by Southeast Asia researchers and policymakers to the UK, or vice versa, in order to develop specific proposals for future collaboration. Priority will be given to those proposals which are likely to lead to substantial collaboration and in which the potential outcomes of the activity would have a clear benefit for both the UK and Southeast Asia.

Each funding award is limited to £2000, which can be used to support travel and subsistence from Southeast Asia to the UK or vice versa. Policymakers and researchers from universities, research institutes and companies in the UK or Southeast Asia are eligible to apply. The awards are not intended to fund research itself, which would have to be supported by the usual national mechanisms.

To apply for this funding, please complete the application form and send it by e-mail to SEAsiaSI@fco.gov.uk by 23 August 2013. Successful awardees will be informed by mid-September 2013.
