UKCCSRC is delighted to announce a special call for applications to the International Research Collaboration Fund to support collaboration during 2015 and 2016 between UK researchers and the FRS.
Awards will be available up to a maximum of £25,000 to cover travel costs and, where applicable, up to six months of staff time. Applicants who make a particularly strong case for an amount exceeding these limits will be considered on a case by case basis.
UKCCSRC academic members have the option of applying for:
- Funding for a visit (e.g. a field trip or group visit) of between one and four weeks in duration covering travel and subsistence only or;
- Funding for a visit (or other collaboration activity) by one researcher (or in some cases more) of between one and six months in duration, covering travel, subsistence and staff costs or;
- Funding to cover laboratory work in the UK on core or log data from the FRS.
Please note applications for visits of a longer duration (over six months) will be considered where co-funding from other sources has been obtained (or is being applied for).
UKCCSRC academic members may now also apply to the International Research Collaboration Fund for short group visits or field trips overseas.
The applicants must make a sufficient case for funding that demonstrates the scientific value of the visit and demonstrates how it would support the UKCCSRC’s overall objective of building emerging research collaborations overseas and the Centre’s International Engagement Strategy.
- Applications will be accepted from Friday 1st May 2015 until COB (17.00 UK time) Friday 29th May 2015.
- Applicants should hear back from the UK CCS Research Centre on the status of their application by the 3rd July 2015.
- The visit/research must take place in 2015 or by 30th September 2016. Reporting and invoicing must be completed by the end of December 2016.
- CO2 injection at the site is planned for January 2016. However, as with any project of this nature, it is possible that delays in the site development may occur and such delays could impact upon planned projects funded by this call.
