Manchester-Indian Institute of Science Research Fund

The University of Manchester and the Indian Institute of Science are pleased to announce a new research fund to support collaborative research projects and to build on their existing partnership.

About the fund

The fund aims to establish new collaborations, facilitate work on proof-of-concept ideas, and in the long term, build international teams well positioned to apply for external research funding.

Proposals may include targeted research support such as joint workshops, researcher exchanges, and forming or developing a collaborative network. To be eligible, a proposal must include a Principle Investigator from each institution and at least one other researcher on each team. We encourage early career researchers to apply.

The fund is open to proposals across all research areas. Projects will be funded for up to 18 months starting August 2023.

Proposals with the potential for sustainability beyond the initial funding period are encouraged.

Current calls

The first call for applications opened on Tuesday, 2 May 2023 and closes on Monday, 3 July 2023.
