British and Argentine scientists.
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 from CONICET). 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 intended to stimulate new collaborations between a UK based and an overseas researcher. A relationship between both parties should already be established prior to making an application.
