The Royal Society is opening a round of Newton Mobility Grants for funding towards travel, subsistence and research expenses to explore opportunities for build lasting networks and strengthen emerging collaborations. This round is open particularly to scientists in Thailand, and may be a good opportunity for archaeological science (note: archaeology under this funding scheme falls under the Earth Sciences). The application window is 15 April – 2 June 2020.
This scheme aims to:
- Strengthen research capacity of the partner countries – by facilitating training and skill transfer from the UK to partner countries
- Support excellent research – by linking the best researchers in the UK with the best researchers and their groups in partner countries and providing support for initial exploratory research
- Establish long term research links – between both partners to ensure sustainable research capacity in partner countries and benefit to the UK research community in the longer term
Research must be within the Royal Society’s remit of natural sciences, which includes but is not limited to biological research, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and physics. For a full list, please see the breakdown of subject groups and areas supported by the Royal Society.
