The UKCCSRC is very excited to launch the second call for applications to the UKCCSRC International Research Collaboration Fund. Click HERE for further details.
This fund offers a mechanism for UK based researchers working within the academic UK CCS community to collaborate with other CCS researchers around the world.
Awards are available for a duration of between one and three months. However, applications for missions of a longer duration will be considered where co-funding from other sources has been obtained (or is being applied for). The mission must take place within nine months of notification of funding.
Awards will be available up to a maximum of £25,000 to cover travel costs and staff time. Applicants who make a particularly strong case for an amount exceeding these limits will be considered on a case by case basis.
Funds are available to support and strengthen both emerging and existing international collaborations. This is the second round of funding available from the UKCCSRC International Research Collaboration Fund in 2014.
Note: The FCO (Foreign & Commonwealth Office) have matched funds, covering all flights, available to help fund a suitable UK academic visitor to Alberta and Saskatchewan. Flights would need to be purchased before March 2015 with the visit taking place soon after.
