UK-Colombia networking workshop 2017

NERC and the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC), jointly with the Colombian Administrative Department of Science Technology & Innovation (Colciencias), expect to issue a joint call for research proposals in spring 2017. In preparation for the call, NERC and AHRC are inviting expressions of interest for eligible UK researchers to attend a two-day workshop on 22-23 February 2017 in Colombia to explore UK-Colombian opportunities for collaboration.

The aim of the workshop is to facilitate new collaborative working relationships between UK environmental and arts & humanities researchers and Colombian researchers, and to inform researchers about the scope of the call and the evidence needs of the supporting Colombian departments (regions).

Selection of the participants will be made by the respective funding agencies - NERC and AHRC in the UK. The deadline for UK researchers to submit an expression of interest form is 16:00 GMT on 13 January 2017.

Those who wish to attend should register their interest by completing the expression of interest form - external link - on SurveyGizmo.
