The Royal Academy of Engineering is currently running a short call for research collaborations with Brazil.
The deadline is 26th Jan 2015 and collaborations must start between 1st March 2015 and 31st March 2015. Funding is provided at a flat rate of £2,000/month regardless of which direction the visits are in. Projects should be between 3 and 12 months in duration.
Successful projects should focus on an engineering research challenge that will enhance social welfare or economic development in the selected partner country and demonstrate a tangible benefit to the Partner Country by enhancing its capacity to carry out excellent research in engineering.
RAEng counts a broad range of disciplines as ‘engineering‘ for the purposes of this call, including biotechnology, petrochemicals, offshore engineering, geotechnics, water resources, building services, telecommunications, optics, lasers, information technology, energy conservation, manufacturing, applied mechanics and materials.
A larger call for collaborations with all Newton Partner Countries (Brazil, China, Mexico, South Africa, Turkey, and Vietnam) will open up early this year. Please contact your Faculty RFPM as soon as possible if you are interested in applying to this call.
