International research collaboration is essential for the global knowledge economy, and it has been shown that internationally mobile researchers tend to be more productive. Furthermore, a shared research interest can help to build trust and relationships between people from very different backgrounds and cultures.
In response to this, and taking advantage of its position as an intercultural relations organisation with global expertise in higher education, the British Council is launching the British Council Researcher Links initiative, in partnership with various research and higher education organisations from around the world.
Researcher links consists of workshops and travel grants, both with a focus on early career researchers.
Under this Researcher Links programme, British Council Vietnam, in collaboration with Aston University, Biotechnology Center of Ho Chi Minh City, The University of Leeds and Danang University of Science and Technology, are organising the thematic workshop on biotechnology from 18 - 20 February, 2014 in HCMC.
We are now calling for participants of early career researchers for these two workshops. Please find details of workshop at the following links:
