As well as acting to further UK researchers’ involvement in EU research programmes, we work proactively with partners in China, India, Japan and the US in targeted joint funding initiatives. In line with RCUK strategy to promote collaboration between the best UK and overseas researchers, these four countries are prioritised either because they are historically strong in engineering and the physical and mathematical sciences, or else they are rapidly growing their capabilities in our research areas.
RCUK have established offices in China, India and the USA to facilitate collaborations.
Overseas Travel Grants Overseas travel grants provide funding for international travel and subsistence. You can use them to visit recognised centres outside the UK to study new techniques and to travel from the UK to start or develop international collaborations.
