Vietnam Science & Technology Day 18-5

The British Embassy Hanoi is pleased to inform you of the Royal Society’s call for international collaborative research proposals under the UK Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).

  • Remit: The proposed research must fall within the remit of the Royal Society (the natural sciences including engineering). The Royal Society does not cover social sciences or clinical medical research.
  • Eligibility: Who can apply? The UK applicant and overseas co-applicant must both be research leaders of international standing with an established track record in their field of research. You must demonstrate evidence of leading a strong research group as well as leadership within the research community, in particular making a substantial contribution to the identification and execution of independent research. As a guide, we would expect both applicants to have at a minimum 8 years of active post-PhD research experience.
  • Value: The maximum award value cannot exceed £225,000 for a three-year period (up to a maximum of £75,000 per year). The grant can be used flexibly on activities directly relevant to supporting collaboration between the applicants and their research groups.
  • Deadline for submission: 3rd May 2018

If you are interested in this programme, we recommend you visit the webcall below and read the attached scheme notes thoroughly.

FYI - last year a research group from HoChiMinh city University of Industry and University of Nottingham won a grant of this programme. If you need to find UK-based collaborators, please see some suggestions attached.

Please help pass this information to your relevant network.
