Joint Project grants provide funding over three years for exchange visits to take place in connection with a bilateral research collaboration between the UK and Korea. Funds are provided to cover international travel and subsistence for the UK group to visit Korea and for subsistence for incoming Korean scientists (up to £6,000 per annum in total). Grants cover all areas of the natural and applied sciences including mathematics, engineering, medicine, and the scientific research aspects of psychology, archaeology, geography, agriculture and the history of science. The Royal Society does not cover social sciences or clinical medical research.
Applicants must be of postdoctoral or equivalent status, at the time the award is taken up. UK group participants must be British or EU citizens resident in the UK. Non-UK/EU citizens who have held a permanent position at a UK institute for three years can apply. Each group must have a lead scientist (group leader) and all visits funded must be made by collaborators from academia of at least postdoctoral status (or equivalent).
