The International Exchanges Scheme is designed to offer a flexible platform for UK based scientists to interact with the best scientists around the world. Funds for a contribution towards travel, subsistence and research expenses can be requested for either a one-off short visit to explore opportunities for building lasting networks or for bilateral visits to strengthen emerging collaborations. This scheme is not intended to support continued research activities between a UK applicant and a co-applicant who was a former colleague or PhD student or to support other existing or recent collaborations between the applicant and co-applicant. This scheme is intended to stimulate collaborations between a UK based and overseas researcher. A relationship between both parties should already be established prior to making an application.
All activities must be on a subject within the natural sciences, including: physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, engineering, agricultural, biological and medical research, geography and experimental psychology.
Duration of funding
- Ireland - Royal Irish Academy (RIA)
- The applicant’s and/or UK team’s airfare overseas
- The co-applicant’s and/or overseas team’s subsistence whilst in the UK
- Up to £2,000 of the total amount requested from the Royal Society can be spent on research expenses and consumables.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- 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.
- Collaborations should be based on a single project involving (or lead by) “the applicant” (UK based scientist) and “the co-applicant” (overseas based scientist).
- For further details please refer to the ‘Eligibility details’ in the scheme guidance notes.
- The scheme is not intended to support continued research between a UK applicant and co-applicant who was a former colleague or PhD student or to support other existing or recent collaborations between the applicant and co-applicant.
- As this scheme is not intended to be used to extended an existing fellowship the applicant and co-applicant must be based in their respective countries/institutions at the time of application.
- Ineligible organizations include industrial, private and commercial organisations, university spin-out companies and governmental bodies.
- Applicants and co-applicants are not permitted to submit more than one application per round (deadline).
