RCUK National Contact Points for Horizon 2020 have held a series of information days around the UK.

Presentations covered some of the key Horizon 2020 opportunities:https://www.flickr.com/photos/stevecadman/134974908/sizes/z/in/photostream/

Humanities researchers might also want to consider applying for the international funding that the AHRC offers. International Co-Is are eligible in various funding schemes including Research Grants, Research Networking, Follow-On Fund and some other thematic calls.

Getting involved in HERA (Humanities in the European Research Area) or applying to the Newton Fund are other ways of developing international research partnerships.

Following the AHRC’s international team’s blog, Research beyond borders, is a useful way of keeping an eye on funding opportunities for international research collaboration specific to UK arts and humanities researchers.
