Support is available for University of Birmingham researchers to bring together expertise from across the breadth of our university to examine a research area from a range of perspectives. Workshop topics should be interdisciplinary and include substantial input from at least two Colleges. Consideration should be given to what might eventually be the benefits to UoB in terms of engagement, impact, high quality publications and grant income generation. Funding can be used to support venue hire, catering and logistical support for organising and delivering your workshop.

This programme aims to attract outstanding researchers from outside of the University, at any career stage, operating at the cutting edge of their disciplines to work collaboratively with colleagues at the University of Birmingham. We hope to support new collaborations on topics that are timely, relevant, and cross disciplinary boundaries. Fellows are normally expected to spend a period of between 4 and 8 weeks on campus. Consideration should be given to what might be the benefits to UoB in terms of engagement, impact, high quality publications and grant income generation. Funding can be used to support travel and accommodation costs of the incoming fellow.
