British Academy: International Partnership and Mobility Scheme

One-year awards of £10,000 and three-year awards of up to £30,000 are available to support the development of research partnerships between UK scholars and scholars in Africa, East Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East, and South Asia. Awards cover any branch of the humanities and social sciences, and are intended to focus on collaborative research on a specific theme of mutual interest, rather than purely on establishing networks. Partnerships can include a range of related activities, and mobility (in the form of visits in both directions, exchanges, etc.) should form an integral part of proposals.

UK-Taiwan One-Year Partnerships: Under the umbrella of the International Partnership and Mobility (IPM) Scheme, one-year partnerships between UK scholars and scholars in Taiwan will be co-funded by the British Academy and the National Science Council of Taiwan.

Aim of Award
The scheme aims to support the development of partnerships between the UK and other areas of the world where research excellence would be strengthened by new, innovative initiatives and links, with an emphasis on helping scholars in the UK and overseas to develop research skills and to produce joint research outcomes.

Applicants must be of postdoctoral or equivalent status (i.e. academic staff with at least one or two years of teaching/ research experience) and should be based within a research active institution for the duration of the award.

Level of Grant
Grants are offered up to a maximum of £10,000 per year for a period of one year or three years.

Closing Date
The closing date for applications is 8 February 2012. Decisions will be announced in late July.
Applications must be submitted via, the Academy’s electronic grant application system.
