Atmospheric Pollution & Human Health in a Chinese Megacity guidance for full proposals

NERC and the Medical Research Council (MRC) in the UK (with input from the Newton Fund) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) are investing in a strategic research programme on urban air pollution in the megacity Beijing and impacts on health. NERC, MRC and NSFC are inviting full proposals from successful Expression of Interest applicants under this programme. Only applicants successful at the Expression of Interest stage are eligible to submit full proposals.

These are collaborative projects between the UK and China. Applicants from the UK must apply through Je-S with Chinese collaborators listed as Project Partners. Chinese applicants will apply through NSFC's system. Both applications will have a common Case for Support attached in each system. Successful grants will have their UK costs paid through Je-S and their Chinese costs paid through NSFC's system.
