International Exchanges

The Bilateral Programme facilitates the collaboration between researchers from Scotland and those based in institutions with which the RSE has a formal Memorandum of Understanding. Exchange Programme grants are for short-term visits of one to four weeks duration, the key objectives being to enhance the research capabilities of individual researchers, develop international collaborative links, and enable participation in international research programmes.

For visits to Scotland, the RSE meets the cost of accommodation and subsistence in Scotland, and international travel is covered by the partner academy. For visits from Scotland, the RSE covers the international travel, and the partner academy provides for accommodation and subsistence.

Both visitors and hosts should have established contact before submitting an application, either by previous collaboration or by scientific correspondence. Closing date: Wed 30 November 2016.
