University / Industry Liaison

University / Industry Liaison

Eligibility

  •  Assistance may be provided to a Fellow (or one of his/her associates) or a Member of the Young Academy of Scotland whether in a University or other academic or research institution or in industry to enable visits to be made in furtherance of collaboration or liaison between the academic or research institutions and industry where consultancy fees are not involved. 
  • These awards may be used for example to enable a researcher in a university department to visit an industrial organisation to initiate or to continue collaborative research on a project of mutual interest or alternatively to enable a researcher from an industrial laboratory to visit an academic laboratory for the same purpose.  They could be used to support a visit of a few weeks or alternatively a number of shorter visits over the period of the award.
  • Such awards may be made to an academic researcher visiting an industrial research centre or vice versa.  Preference will be given when both co-operating organisations are located in Scotland, but awards may also be given when only one of them is so located. 
  • The maximum amount for any one project in a single year will be £600 but there would be no objection to assistance also being received from either the parent or the host organisation.  
  • Fellows are normally expected to seek funds from other United Kingdom grant giving sources e.g. Royal Society, British Academy, British Council, Arts Council, or employing institutions.  Fellows are also encouraged to seek support from sources outwith the United Kingdom.
  • In the event that the time of the proposed liaison and the meetings of the Grants Committee and any other funding body concerned require simultaneous applications to be made, the RSE will make a provisional grant on the understanding that the Society will be reimbursed appropriately when the amount awarded from other sources has been decided.  If a Fellow is ineligible for, or has failed to obtain, a grant from other sources, he/she may apply for the overall costs, subject to limits already stated.
  • As with all RSE grants, applications should be made at least four months in advance of the liaison for which support is being sought.  Retrospective applications will not be considered.
