We have also set up a LinkedIn group to help you network with other researchers in order to establish research collaborations suitable for the Daniel Turnberg UK/Middle East Travel Fellowships scheme. 

About the scheme

The scheme was established by the Academy in partnership with Lord and Lady Turnberg, in memory of their late son Daniel Turnberg, a doctor and researcher with a keen interest in fostering links between the UK and the Middle East.

The aim of the scheme is to encourage researchers to experience an alternative research environment, to learn new techniques and develop ideas for future collaborations. The Fellowships are aimed primarily at early- and mid-career scientists, particularly those just embarking on a career in research.

Since its launch in 2008, the scheme has awarded 190 Travel Fellowships, to researchers from all countries eligible to apply.
