Invitation to apply for Researcher Exchange, India UK Water Centre

The India-UK Water Centre is inviting proposals from members of its Open Network of Water Scientists, to apply for funding under one of two researcher exchange schemes.

Funding is available to support at least two researcher exchanges to be undertaken during the period 01 January 2019- 30 June 2019: at least one exchange by an Indian water scientist to the UK and at least one exchange by a UK water scientist to India.

Exchange Purpose: Applicants must clearly outline the purpose and intended benefits of the exchange. The IUKWC expect the outlined purpose to be commensurate with the expertise (Junior or Senior) of the applicant. The aims of the exchange could include, but not be limited to, the following:

  • Exploring research ideas for future collaborations
  • Building capacity, developing understanding or training in research concepts or methods
  • Networking and experience of international working (particularly for Junior Exchange).

Exchange Theme: This funding opportunity is aimed at building on NERC-MoES research, and facilitating new collaborations in any of the five IUKWC theme areas of:

  • Developing hydro-climate services to support water security;
  • Building cross-sectoral collaborations to understand the dynamic interactions across the water-energy-food nexus;
  • Using new scientific knowledge to help stakeholders set objectives for freshwater management;
  • Improving freshwater monitoring frameworks and data for research and management;
  • Transforming science into catchment management solutions.
