The British Council’s ‘Researcher Exchange Programme (RXP)’ aims at supporting the development of new research links between higher education institutions and research laboratories in the UK and other countries. It awards funds to encourage postdoctoral researchers’ mobility for the exchange of information, ideas and knowledge, acquisition of new cutting-edge skills as well as long-term co-operation relationship building. Researchers in areas relating to the evolutionary theory and Darwin’ legacy are invited to apply for the ‘Darwin Researcher Exchange Programme Awards’. This scheme is aimed at research carried out in, amongst other areas, behavioural ecology, biodiversity, comparative biology, systematics, developmental and evolutionary biology, ecology and paleobiology. The Franco-British Alliance programme, managed and jointly funded by the British Council and the French Foreign Affairs Ministry, seeks to promote Franco-British scientific co-operation involving universities and public sector research institute. The programme provides support in all disciplines, including the social sciences and humanities. You can read more stories like this one in the May issue of European RTD Insight
