Bristol International Research Workshops

**Please note that due to the evolving situation with the COVID-19 pandemic we will not be accepting further applications for this scheme until further notice**

In the meantime please refer to our new Bristol International Online Research Collaboration Awards which can support this type of activity virtually.

Bristol International Research Workshops are designed to stimulate new ideas, themes and interdisciplinary synergy both within the University and with international partners. Applicants can bid for a single workshop or a small series, depending on what best serves their needs and delivers the greatest potential for strengthening the research profile of the University as well as enhancing international partnerships. All workshops must be co-produced with international partners and must involve international partners in their delivery. Workshops should be interactive events which involve two-way knowledge exchange, rather than dissemination events. This funding scheme is therefore not suitable for applications to support conferences.

This scheme has been designed to support workshops which are geared towards enhancing international partnerships, and which have strong potential for producing international co-authored publications and/or international research bids as well as enhancing the University of Bristol’s global research profile.

There is funding available for up to four workshop awards per academic year.

Applications can be submitted throughout the year and will be reviewed on a monthly rolling basis until all funds for that year have been allocated. The maximum value of any application – whether for a single workshop or a series – is £5000.

Please ensure you familiarise yourself with the full requirements and guidance outlined in the 'Guidance for applicants' section of the Research Workshop call specification document before completing the application form.

Bristol International Research Workshops can be developed in complement to other activities, such as Bristol Benjamin Meaker Distinguished Visiting Professorships or Bristol ‘Next Generation’ Visiting Researcher awards. Please note, however, that individual applications must be submitted to the respective schemes. These will be assessed as two separate applications and may therefore have different outcomes.
