About this funder:




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. Rather, the scheme is intended to stimulate new collaborations between scientists in the UK and overseas.

Subjects covered

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 

here. The Royal Society does not cover clinical medicine (such as patient orientated research and clinical trials), social sciences or humanities, other than when working in partnership with organisations.

Clinical and patient orientated research is considered to be an interventional study on human participants at the individual or group level, including but not limited to surgical or drug intervention. Eligible use of human participants in research can include investigation where the experiments are conducted in vitro – for example, the use of human tissue or other biological samples, chemistry techniques, mathematical modelling or engineering, translational research and collaborative research with clinicians
