The next round of the Distinguished Visiting Fellowships scheme is now open for applications. The deadline is 4pm on 18th April 2016. The aim of the scheme is to help UK universities to build capacity and promote collaborations by facilitating visits by distinguished international experts. It provides funding to enable an academic engineering department in a UK university to be a host for up to a month to a Distinguished Visiting Fellow from an overseas academic centre of excellence. Details Here. This will be the only call for the DVF scheme for visits taking place in the 2016/17 financial year. The subsequent round will open in February 2017.
