Funding Opportunity: Newton Fund and Royal Academy of Engineering

 Newton Research Collaboration Programme.

The aim of the Newton Research Collaboration Programme is to support international exchanges between UK engineering researchers and their peers in Newton Fund partner countries. The scheme provides funding to support the travel, accommodation and subsistence costs of the participating researchers at a rate of up to £2,000 per month of exchange visit. Exchanges can last 3-12 months, be either one or two way in direction, and must form part of a collaborative research project. Participating partner countries in this call: Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, Turkey, and Vietnam.   Deadline for applications: 14

 Industry Academia Partnership Programme – Thailand

The Industry Academia Partnership Programme supports bilateral industry-academia mobility between  to enhance engineering education, innovation and research outcomes in Newton Fund partner countriesThe scheme provides funding of up to £50,000 to support the travel, subsistence and salary support costs related to conducting collaborative activities between industry and academic partners. The programme supports collaborative projects of up to 24 months within any field of engineering. Participating partner countries in this call: Thailand.  Deadline for applications: 1 August 2016





Funding Opportunity: Industrial Secondment Scheme

 The Royal Academy of Engineering is accepting proposals for its Industrial Secondment Scheme.  This supports early to mid-career academics to undertake a secondment in industry to conduct a collaborative research project.         The secondment allows the awardee to gain knowledge and first-hand experience of current industry working practice. Upon their return to the university, the awardee will use their industrial experience to enhance both their teaching and student learning.   The scheme is now open for applications with a deadline of 4pm Tuesday 31st of May 2016.   For further information see:


Funding Opportunity: Engineering and Built Environment Visiting Professorships

Royal Academy of Engineering welcomes applications from all areas within Engineering. We encourage applications from minority and under-represented groups in engineering, especially from women. The visiting professors scheme  supports the appointment of senior industrial engineers as Visiting Professors at UK universities.         This industry-into-academia initiative aims to utilise the experience of the Visiting Professor to  enhance student learning, enhance the employability and skills of UK engineering graduates, deliver face to face teaching and mentoring at the host university.  The scheme is now open for applications with a deadline of 4pm Monday 23rd May 2016. This year the Happold Foundation has provided additional funding to support one additional Visiting Professor in the Built Environment.
