“The Research Councils UK (RCUK) and the Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (PCIEERD) of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), are pleased to invite applications to the RCUK-PCIEERD Research Partnerships Call.
This initiative will provide funding for small high-quality collaborative research projects between UK and Philippine researchers which contribute to the economic development and welfare of the Philippines. PCIEERD invites proposals which address issues on the thematic area Energy-Food-Water-Environment Nexus.
The objective is to deliver significant 1-2 year research funding for internationally competitive and innovative collaborative projects between researchers from the Philippines and the UK that will allow the pursuit of shared research interests.
Proposals within the thematic area above are welcomed from across the remits of the UK Research Councils. Recognising the multidisciplinary nature of the thematic area, the development of interdisciplinary collaborations is particularly welcome.
Proponents should consider how their proposal makes the best use of available expertise in the UK and the Philippines, the added value of collaboration and how the proposal will meet the Official Development Assistance (ODA) requirements of this Newton Fund activity.
Please be advised that the full deadline is 16:00 BST/GMT (23:00 PHT) 02 August 2016. Any proposal received after this deadline will not be considered for funding.
Researchers will be responsible for developing their own collaborations. Once a research proposal is developed, UK and Philippines applicants must apply jointly for funding to the RCUK Newton – PCIEERD-DOST Research Partnership Call, via the Research Council Je-S online application system (https://je-s.rcuk.ac.uk).
