The Research Mobility Programme (RMP) is an opportunity for staff or postgraduate researchers in any academic discipline to bid for funding to visit any Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) international partner. The visit can be anything from a week to 6 months duration.
The aim of the RMP is to support the development of international networks and longer term research links with WUN partners. It is also intended to encourage personal and academic development. Priority will be given to well defined proposals which demonstrate a clear potential to contribute to a department’s strategic international ambitions.
Awards are worth up to a maximum of £2,500 and cover economy air travel, visa, accommodation, and subsistence costs.
Applicants should read the guide to applying for an RMP award before completing the attached application form.
The completed application must include a 1000-word outline of research and benefits, details of costs, and letters of support from your home supervisor and host supervisor (for students) or academic collaborator (for staff) as well as from your Head of Department (students and staff).
Successful applicants must take up their award by end July 2014. Receipts will be required to show how funding was spent.
Within a month of return, all awardees will be required to complete a brief report about the visit. For students, short reports will also be required from home and host supervisors. The report should include:
