Interested in establishing or expanding networks to China, Brazil, India or Taiwan? The AHRC have just announced a new highlight notice in the research networking scheme that covers all these countries.
The aim of a highlight notice is to set up a quick and easy opportunity to encourage proposals in particular areas. It has the advantage that there are no new scheme requirements to learn as it utilises an existing scheme; you just have to address the topic of the highlight notice in the case for support.
Any proposals received in response to the highlight notice will be assessed to the standard scheme criteria and processes. Whilst this means proposals don’t get priority in assessment; additional funding may be available to supplement the standard budget to fund proposals that fit the highlight notice as long as the quality criteria is fulfilled.
You can submit proposals at any time up to December 2013. More information is available on the research networking page of the AHRC website.
The AHRC have gone a bit international crazy this week so keep your eyes open for another post tomorrow about a great new opportunity to allow flexible international research collaborations.
