More than 10 University of Liverpool researchers have been successful in securing support for international partnerships the Newton Innovation Fund.
The £375 million initiative to develop partnerships between the UK and 15 of the Emerging Powers, including India, China and Brazil, aims to support researchers interested in collaborations across a wide range of disciplines, including environment, health and architecture.
The Fund, which also supports partnerships with Latin America, South Africa, and other parts of South Asia, is a major initiative supported by the UK Government. It encourages the development of science and innovation partnerships that promote economic development in emerging countries.
Successful applications from Liverpool include:
The fund is separated into three main strands, with the first focused on the mobility of PhD students, researchers and fellowships for early career researchers.
Another funding strand supports research programmes tailored to specific countries, including sustainable cities, public health and manufacturing in India. A third area looks at how research is translated for industry use.
Director of Universities UK’s International Unit – one of the delivery partners for the Newton Fund -, Vivienne Stern, will meet and congratulate Fund recipients at an event on Thursday, 9 July at the Foresight Centre.
For more information about future opportunities with the Newton Fund contact Claire Kidman at the University’s International Development Office.
