Researcher Links gives early career researchers from the UK and Thailand the opportunity to form international connections through fully funded workshops and travel grants.
The programme runs in around 19 other countries globally, and since the launch in 2013, thousands of researchers have benefited from Researcher Links. New international collaborations, networks and projects have already been formed directly from the early rounds of workshops.
Researcher Links will be running in Thailand under the Newton Fund to enable knowledge exchange, as well as skills and career development – areas that are important for sustainable development.
In Thailand, the British Council collaborates with the Thailand Research Fund to deliver programmes which focus on the following local development needs:
- Environmental and Biological sciences
- Technology Transfer
- Humanities and Social Science
- Physical Sciences and Engineering
- Agriculture and food security
- Health, and demographic change and migration
