The Czech Academy of Sciences

The Royal Society of Edinburgh has a Memorandum of Understanding with the Czech Academy of Sciences to facilitate, encourage and support research collaboration in all areas between research groups in Scotland and the Czech Republic. This scheme is additional to and complements existing schemes operated at UK level by the Royal Society and the British Academy in London.

The RSE exchange programme is offered from autumn 2005 and grants are awarded through a competitive process to support study visits to and from the Czech Republic. 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 programmes. Both visitors and hosts in the Czech Republic should have established contact before submitting an application, either by previous collaboration or by scientific correspondence. Collaborators based in the Czech Republic must be employed by one of the Czech Academy of Sciences Research Institutes. Details of the Czech Academy of Sciences Research Institutes can be found here.

Visits are funded by the terms of agreements with the Czech Academy of Sciences. The RSE will pay the cost of APEX or equivalent fares plus travel to and from the UK departure point. Local costs will be met by the Czech Academy of Sciences.

A joint drug delivery conference on Nanomedicines for the Future was held at the University of Strathclyde on 18 November 2005 to initiate research collaboration in drug delivery.

Applications are considered in all areas of the natural sciences, social sciences, arts letters and humanities.
