Research Councils UK (RCUK) and National Commission for Scientific Research and Technology(CONICYT) are to inviting applications to the Newton RCUK-CONICYT Broadening Impact Call 2017.
This initiative will provide funding for internationally competitive, transformative and high-quality collaborative research projects between UK, Chilean and other Latin American DAC list country researchers which contribute to the economic development and welfare of developing countries in Latin America.
Proposals should address the theme: Energy-Food-Water-Environment Nexus. Recognising the multidisciplinary nature of the thematic area, the development of interdisciplinary collaborations is particularly welcomed. This call will form part of the Newton Fund commitment and all proposals must meet Overseas Development Assistance requirements.
In total up to £1 million will be made available on the UK side with up to £500,000 from CONICYT. It is expected that two to three proposals will be funded dependent on quality. Projects can be between 24 to 36 months duration.
