Rebooting Scotland’s Research Collaborations with Europe

Europe is a crucial research partner for Scotland in many areas of research, as well as providing opportunities for researcher mobility and careers.

The Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE), in collaboration with the Scottish Funding Council and the Scottish Government, is pleased to announce £3 million of new funds for Scottish and European research projects, mobility and other collaborative activity – Saltire Research Awards.

The schemes will enable research collaboration activity with European nations, including EEA and EFTA countries with partners chosen by researchers. Participating in the schemes can be done independently of Horizon Europe activity.

Open to all academic disciplines, (STEMM, Arts & Humanities and Social Sciences) including multidisciplinary projects.

Professor Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, President (interim) of the Royal Society of Edinburgh said: “Programmes such as the Saltire Research Awards play an important role in supporting research excellence and maintaining Scotland’s reputation as a world leader in research. We look forward to working with the Scottish Government and Scottish Funding Council to making the awards a success”.

The RSE is inviting applications across five new calls supporting all to realise their potential. For further details of each of these schemes, terms and conditions, and the deadlines for applications visit:
