Scoping visits - Deadline: 4pm, Friday 22nd March 2024

We are delighted to announce our second call offering funding to researchers involved in ageing related studies to undertake scoping visits to establish and strengthen relationships that bring together researchers from across Europe and the UK.

Proposed activities should be designed to form new collaborations with the aim of creating cross-disciplinary insights into key aspects of the ageing process, to prime researchers to respond to opportunities for targeted research funding and to translate their knowledge into real-life benefits for the ageing population.

Applicants are encouraged to review our European Partnerships to identify potential partner organisations whom they wish to pursue links with. 

Applicants can apply for up to £2,500 to cover 80% of the cost for two researchers to visit nominated European partner(s) or host their European partner(s). Applicants will be required to contribute 20% to the overall costs of proposed activities. All anticipated costs must be sufficiently detailed in the application form and all expenditure must take place before 31st July 2024 and a final report and cost receipts submitted by 30th September 2024.

If awarded, funds will be paid in arrears to the UK partner institution.


Guidance on 80% funding arrangement for research and academic staff in UK-based Higher Education Institutions (HEIs):

This scheme provides funding at 80% in line with standard full economic costing allocations for UKRI funding. The scheme only funds travel and no overheads, in line with the UKRI terms and conditions for our GPA (Global Partnering Award). We suggest applicants in UK HEIs contact their local research office, line manager or Head of Department/School to request the additional 20% from internal ‘QR’ *, overheads or research support funding, making the case for the benefit of the scoping visits for the development of your career, network, research activities and profile.
