Newton Advanced Fellowships provide early to mid-career international researchers who already have a track record with an opportunity to develop their research strengths and capabilities, and those of their group or network, through training, collaboration and visits with a partner in the UK.
The award enables international researchers based in a country covered by the Newton Fund to establish and develop collaborations with the UK with the intention of transferring knowledge and research capabilities. The skills and knowledge gained should contribute to advancing economic development and social welfare of the partner country.
Applicants must have a PhD or equivalent research experience and hold a permanent or fixed-term contract in an eligible university or research institute in a partner country, which must span the duration of the project. Collaborations should focus on a single project involving the overseas-based researcher ("the Applicant") and a UK-based researcher ("the Co-applicant"). Applicants should have not more than 15 years postdoctoral research experience.
The British Academy Newton Advanced Fellowships cover researchers working in all disciplines within the social sciences and humanities. Details here.
This scheme provides established international researchers with an opportunity to develop the research strengths and capabilities of their research group through training, collaboration and reciprocal visits with a partner in the UK. The skills and knowledge gained should lead to changes in the wellbeing of communities and
This award is currently available to international early career group leaders to develop their research by linking them with some of the best research groups in the UK. The aim is to:
- Support the development of a well-trained research community who can contribute to poverty alleviation by transferring new skills and creating new knowledge which can lead to changes in the wellbeing of communities and increased economic benefits.
- Strengthen research excellence in partner countries by supporting promising independent, early-career scientists and their research groups and networks to develop their research through training, collaboration, reciprocal visits and the transfer of knowledge and skills from the UK.
- Establish long-term links between the best research groups (and networks) in partner countries and the UK to ensure that improvements in research capacity are sustainable in the longer term. Such long-term links will also benefit the UK, securing our position with partner countries as the scientific partner of choice.
Applicants must have a PhD or equivalent research experience and hold a permanent or fixed-term contract in an eligible university or research institute, which must span the duration of the project. Applicants should have no more than 15 years of postdoctoral experience. Collaborations should focus on a single project involving overseas-based scientist ("the Applicant") and UK-based scientist ("the Co-applicant").

The Newton Research Collaboration Programme is a component of the UK Newton Fund, which aims to develop science and innovation partnerships to promote the economic development and social welfare of developing countries.
The main focus of the Newton Research Collaboration Programme is to support the aims of the Newton Fund by facilitating international exchanges lasting between three months and one year between researchers in the UK and their counterparts in selected Newton Fund Partner Countries.
Exchanges can be either one- or two-way in direction, and should form part of a collaborative research project, incorporating visits and dissemination activities.
Awards provide funding at a flat rate of £2,000 per month of exchange visit (up to £24,000 for 12 months' total exchange), regardless of the direction of travel or whether the exchange is one- or two-way. Each single exchange visit in either direction must last at least three months.

The ERC's mission is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence.
Being 'investigator-driven', or 'bottom-up', in nature, the ERC approach allows researchers to identify new opportunities and directions in any field of research, rather than being led by priorities set by politicians. This ensures that funds are channelled into new and promising areas of research with a greater degree of flexibility. Information and advice on the application process can be found here.
Get ready to apply for Europe's most prestigious funding scheme! Call for application to ERC Starting Grants.
Apply to run a research workshop between the UK and Malaysia , or the UK and Thailand.
Researchers that reside in the UK can apply for funding to visit a university or research institution in one of the partner countries, and those residing in one of the partner countries can apply for funding to come to the UK.
Newton Mobility Grants provide support for international researchers based in a country covered by the Newton Fund to establish and develop collaboration with UK researchers around a specific jointly defined research project.
These one-year awards are particularly suited to initiate new collaborative partnerships, between scholars who have not previously worked together, or new initiatives between scholars who have collaborated in the past.
The grants intend to strengthen the research capacity/capability of, and contribute to promoting economic development and social welfare in, the overseas country. The awards will also initiate the development of longer-term links between the overseas and UK researchers.
Awards might include a range of related activities, but mobility (in the form of visits and exchanges, etc.) should form an integral part of proposals. The main purpose of the funding is to cover travel and maintenance costs, although costs related to other eligible activities will be considered. Partnerships including a training element and involving scholars in the early stages in their career will be looked on favourably.
It is expected that the mobility grants will establish links between partners. Researchers may subsequently wish to consider applying for other Newton Fund programmes.
Luxembourg: 2017 PEARL Call for proposals for 3 leading researchers from abroad
PEARL candidates should be leaders in the field, innovative,
