International Exchanges Scheme (Standard Programme) of the The Royal Society
The International Exchanges Scheme is designed to offer a flexible platform for UK based scientists to interact with the best scientists around the world (including the argentinian scientists). Funds for a contribution towards travel, subsistence and research expenses can be requested for either a one-off short visit to explore opportunities for building lasting networks or for bilateral visits to strengthen emerging collaborations.
This scheme is not intended to support continued research activities between a UK applicant and a co-applicant who was a former
colleague or PhD student or to support other existing or recent collaborations between the applicant and co-applicant. Rather, the scheme is intended to stimulate new collaborations between scientists in the UK and overseas.
