What is Researcher Links?

Researcher Links consisted of workshops and travel grants, both with a focus on early career researchers. They encouraged an international research placement to interact, learn from each other and explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations.

Researchers in the UK were able to apply for funding to spend up to three months at a university or research institution in one of 19 partner countries, and those in one of the partner countries were able to apply for funding to visit the UK.

Partner countries included Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Morocco, Egypt, Qatar, South Africa, Nigeria, Russia (humanities and social sciences only), Turkey, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Thailand, Indonesia, South Korea, Vietnam, Bangladesh and the US (humanities and social sciences only).
