Aims and Scopes

In 2013, the British Council has launched a new five-year programme to encourage international research collaboration between ambitious young researchers from the UK and nineteen countries around the world.

Starting from 2014, the programme in Russia is being implemented jointly with the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR). The programme provides opportunities for early career researchers from the UK and internationally to interact, learn from each other and explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations.

As part of this programme, a ‘call to action’ was issued in April 2015 by the British Council and by RFBR for leading researchers to propose themes for bilateral workshops to be held in Russia which will bring together early career researchers to discuss their research and start to build international relationships. Successful applicant organisations from the UK and Russia are now recruiting early career researchers and welcome applications to attend the above workshops.

The workshops will provide a unique opportunity for sharing research expertise and networking. During the workshops early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their research in the form of a short oral (or poster) presentation and discuss this with established researchers from the UK and partner countries. There will be a focus on building up links for future collaborations and participants selected on the basis of their research potential and ability to build longer term links.
