Newton Fund Researcher Links Workshop

Deadline for applications: 25 July, 2017

The programme Newton Fund Researcher Links provides opportunities for early career researchers from the UK and internationally to interact, learn from each other and explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations. As part of this programme, Newton Fund Researcher Links is now recruiting early career researchers to participate in the above workshop.

The workshop will provide a unique opportunity for sharing research expertise and networking. During the workshops early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their research in the form of a short oral presentation and discuss this with established researchers from the UK and partner countries (see coordinators and mentors above). Although this is not an eligibility/selection criterion, Newton Fund Researcher Links will encourage selected participants to submit a longer outline or more developed draft of their presentations before the workshop.


The British Council and Fundação de Amparo a Pesquisa – DF (FAP-DF) will cover the costs related to the participation to the workshop, including: travel (both international and local), accommodation and meals. Costs for the visa will be covered; however participants will be responsible for making all the necessary arrangements. Although this cost will not be covered by the British Council, participants are encouraged to purchase an adequate travel and medical insurance. The British Council accepts no responsibility for any problems which may occur when the participants are in-country.


  • Applications must be submitted using the Researcher Links application form;
  • Application must be submitted before the deadline;
  • Participants must be Early Career Researchers: Early Career Researchers are defined as holding a PhD (or having equivalent research experience – candidates in the late stages of their PhDs will also be considered) and having up to 10 years post-PhD research experience. They are equivalent to the ‘Recognised Researcher’ and sometimes ‘Experienced Researcher’ categories in the EU framework for researchers’ careers.
  • Participants must have a research or academic position (a permanent post, research contract, or fellowship etc) at a recognised research institution either in the UK or in Brazil;
  • Participant’s research area can be in any subject in social sciences or other disciplines related to the broad theme of the workshop, in particular, but not exclusively, law, economics, sociology and political sciences;
