International Research Collaboration Fund: apply now

September 26th, 2023

The university’s International Research Collaboration Fund (IRCF) is welcoming new applications. The £450,000 fund supports international research collaboration and mobility for colleagues across the UK campuses.  

Funding is available up to 31 July 2024 and is open for two streams: 

  • International mobility grants of up to £5,000 for early career researchers (ECRs), established researchers, technical, and APM staff (level 5 and above), to initiate and deepen high-quality international partnerships. 
  • Partnership accelerator grants of between £10,000 and £20,000 for ECRs, established researchers, technical, and APM staff (level 5 and above), to support more substantial activity accelerating high-quality international partnerships. 

The IRCF particularly welcomes applications from colleagues seeking to establish or grow links with world-leading research groups and institutions that will lead to excellent research outputs.  It operates via a rolling-call model with a quick, straightforward application and monthly approvals process. 

As the university develops an ambitious new International Research and Knowledge Exchange Strategy over the coming months, and following the UK’s rejoining of Horizon Europe, the IRCF will continue to be a cornerstone of our efforts to support high-quality research, as well as our global reputation, influence and impact.
