EPSRC Overseas Travel Grants

Overseas Travel Grants (OTGs) provide funding for international travel and subsistence to study new techniques at recognised centres outside the UK, and for travel to start or develop international collaborations. One potential use of an OTG, for example, is for travel to European centres to develop collaborations for bids to Horizon 2020.

Centre visits may be to overseas universities or industrial organisations. The scheme may not be used to support solely conference attendance.

There is no limit to the amount of funding which can be applied for, and no closing dates. Grants cover travel, subsistence, salary and indirect costs. Visa costs are also eligible.
