As part of the Newton Fund, the Royal Society has launched this scheme to provide 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 increased economic benefits.
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 advancing economic development and social welfare of the partner country by transferring new skills and creating new knowledge
- strengthen research excellence in partner countries by supporting promising independent, early to mid-career researchers, 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
Research must be within the Royal Society’s remit of natural sciences, which includes but is not limited to biological research, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and physics. For a full list, please see the breakdown of subject groups and areas supported by the Royal Society.
The Newton Advanced Fellowship is in partnership with the Academy of Medical Sciences. Applicants for clinical or patient-orientated research should apply to the Academy of Medical Sciences.
