British Academy International Partnership and Mobility scheme

Leave a comment

The British Academy has recently announced a new round of its popular ‘International Partnership and Mobility’ Scheme.  The scheme aims to support development of partnerships where research excellence would be strengthened by new, innovative initiatives and links.  The idea is that long term and ‘vigorous’ links will be forged through the scheme.  Its good to note that they highlight that ‘all partners’ should gain from the collaboration, suggesting perhaps that one sided bids won’t be looked on favourably.  This year, the scheme will support development of partnerships between the UK and a range of regions, including Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East, South Asia, East and South East Asia.  Up to £10,000 per year is available per application. 

 Note that co-funding is available in China and Taiwan through funding organisations in those countries, if your research ideas and links happen to be relevant to those countries.  Although the funder in China (the Chinese Academy of Social Science) understandably sounds like it funds only social science, many of their institutes in fact cover disciplines that might be considered to be humanities.

 The deadline is 6th February 2013  and our understanding is that competition is usually fierce –  40 awards are to be offered in total.
