Networking Grants

The awards provide up to £25,000 over one year to support collaborations between researchers in other countries and the UK, and to hold networking events aimed at strengthening global research capacity.

Key dates

Applications for round one are closed. 

Round two will open in autumn 2024.

 

The Networking Grants scheme allows researchers from across disciplines and countries, working with researchers based in the UK, to hold networking events, forge new links and generate innovative transdisciplinary research ideas. Our goal is that these new networks will be well positioned to compete for larger grants offered in the future. The scheme has two funding streams: one for a selection of developed countries, and another for a selection of countries on the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) list of Official Development Assistance (ODA) recipients, to include the Least Developed Countries. Please see the tabs below for more information on each stream.

We are pleased to be working with the British Academy, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society to offer Networking Grants funded through the International Science Partnerships Fund (ISPF).

This will allow UK-based researchers and innovators to collaborate with international partners on multidisciplinary projects. Furthermore, it will help the UK and its partners to deliver bigger, better science than one country can do alone.

The grants will help to:

  • Deliver important science that can only be fully realised by working internationally.
  • Tackle global challenges and develop future technologies, positioning UK researchers and innovators at the heart of global solutions.
  • Enable international partners to collaborate in an agile way.
  • Strengthen the influence and connections of the UK Research and Development (R&D) community domestically and around the world.

Supporters

Networking Grants are supported through the International Science Partnerships Fund (ISPF). ISPF is managed by the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology, and delivered by a consortium of the UK’s leading research bodies, including the UK National Academies.
