International exchanges scheme – Italy cost-share programme

The Royal Society, in collaboration with the National Research Council of Italy, invites applications for the Italy cost-share programme under the international exchanges scheme. This stimulates new collaborations within the natural sciences between scientists in the UK and Italy. Eligible research subjects include the following: physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, engineering, agricultural, biological and medical research, geography and experimental psychology. Clinical or patient-oriented research is not covered. Collaborations should be based on a single project.

Both the UK applicant and overseas co-applicant must have completed a PhD or have extensive experience at an equivalent level and must hold a permanent or fixed term contract for the duration of the award at an eligible organisation in their respective country. They must be based in their respective countries and institutions at the time of application. Any project participants must be working in a UK or overseas university or research institute.

The participation of junior scientists, such as PhD students or postdoctoral researchers, is encouraged. Visits must be bilateral with the applicant and co-applicant undertaking at least one visit to the overseas collaborating institute.

The Royal Society provides up to £12,000 over two years for the UK team’s airfare overseas and subsistence whilst abroad. Up to £3,000 of this can be used for research expenses and consumables. An additional £12,000 equivalent is also available from the cost share partner.

Deadline: 3 June 2020
