Funding area: International
The RSE – NSFC Joint Project scheme is designed to facilitate international collaboration between researchers based in Scotland and China. A grant is provided to researchers to cover travel, subsistence, and research expenses.
This scheme is available for Scottish-based researchers only and is not available for researchers based in the rest of the UK. Researchers based outside Scotland may wish to apply to the Royal Society (of London) Joint Project scheme.
The collaboration should be based on a single project, with two teams or individuals based in Scotland and China. A relationship must have already been established between the Scotland-based and China-based researchers. The collaboration should involve bilateral exchanges between Scotland and China (applications will only be considered for bilateral, not multilateral, projects).
