Call de Studentships Bilateral Research Fund promotes scientific collaboration between Portugal and the United Kingdom

Parsuk 2024

Applications for the Bilateral Research Fund (BRF) 2024 program are open until April 22. This is an initiative of PARSUK - Portuguese Association of Researchers and Students in the UK, funded by FCT, which aims to establish and develop scientific collaborations between Portugal and the UK.

The BRF is an annual program that offers doctoral and early career researchers the opportunity to obtain Studentship funding of up to €3,000. Five proposals are expected to be funded, with Call having an annual budget of €15,000.

The lead applicant must be affiliated with a research institution in Portugal or the UK, and may have several co-investigators. At least one co-investigator must be based in the partner country (for example, if the lead applicant is based in a Portuguese research institution, the co-investigator must be based in a British research institution).

Applications must be submitted online using the appropriate form. See the PARSUK website for more information on the BRF program.

This collaboration between FCT and PARSUK is part of the protocol between the two institutions, signed in 2019 and renewed in December 2023.
