Who can apply?

The funding is available to leading researchers or established researchers, as defined by the European Commission, in the UK and Peru. Multidisciplinary proposals are welcome.

How to apply?

Since the British Council local partner in Peru is CONCYTEC, Peruvian applicants must comply with both application guidelines, the British Council application guideline and CONCYTEC application guideline provided through Cienciactiva. 

For successful applications, the next step is to sign the contract. In this process, the Peruvian partner will sign and receive funds from Cienciactiva, and the UK partner will sign and receive funds from the British Council.
