British Council Researcher Links

To retain its leading position UK researchers need to continue to connect internationally, and build mutually beneficial partnerships for the future with emerging powers. The British Council’s new initiative Researcher Links utilises the common ground of shared research interests to provide a forum for early career researchers from the UK and internationally to interact, learn from each other and explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations.

The initiative comprises thematic research workshops and travel grants, and is co-funded by the British Council and partner organisations. An open call is announced annually for experienced researchers from the UK and Russia to lead a workshop with up to 40 participants (equal number from the UK and Russia) in an area with the most potential for collaboration. Proposals are reviewed by British and Russian expert panels and selected on the basis of mutual benefit, research quality and potential for longer term sustainability. There is also an open call for travel grants for mobility between the UK and Russia which supports short research visits (up to 3 months) with the aim of starting up longer term collaboration.

The Researcher Links initiative encourages the involvement of social sciences and humanities researchers, and provides space for interdisciplinary interaction, with opportunities to bring together researchers from different fields focussed on a common goal.

SCIENTIFIC WORKSHOPS FOR EARLY CAREER RESEARCHERS

The British Council’s Researcher Links 5-year programme utilises the common ground of shared research interests to provide a forum for early career researchers from the UK and internationally to interact, learn from each other and explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations.

In collaboration with partner organisations, the British Council co-funds and delivers bilateral UK-Russia scientific workshops within the following parameters:

- a residential workshop, over 3–4 days;
- approximately 40 participants with an equal number from the UK and Russia;
- leading researchers from the UK and Russia are involved as ‘workshop leaders’ in defining the theme, inviting keynotes, and selecting workshop participants (there is an open call for workshop participants with clear selection criteria).
