The British Council is launching the British Council Researcher Links initiative, in partnership with various research and higher education organizations from around the world.
A 'call to action' was issued on June 12 for leading researchers to propose themes for bilateral workshops to be held in one of the partner countries (see below) that will bring together early career researchers to discuss their research and start to build international relationships. If you would like to propose a theme then we would encourage you to follow the steps outlined at the end of this page, before the application deadline of July 14.
The workshops may be specific to a particular field of research or interdisciplinary in nature. If the workshop is interdisciplinary, please indicate this on the application form by ticking more than one assessment panel as instructed. All fields of research are covered.
At this stage the partner countries are (follow links to specific country web pages): Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Morocco, Egypt, Qatar, South Africa, Nigeria, Russia, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Thailand, Indonesia, South Korea, Vietnam and Bangladesh
