Newton Researcher Links gives early career researchers from the UK and the Philippines the opportunity to form international connections through fully funded workshops and travel grants. 

The programme has run in around 19 other countries globally, and since the launch in 2013, thousands of researchers have benefited from Researcher Links. New international collaborations, networks and projects have already been formed directly from the earlier rounds of workshops.

Researcher Links will be running in the Philippines under the Newton Agham Programme to enable knowledge exchange, as well as skills and career development – areas that are important for sustainable development. This forms part of the UK’s official development assistance programme, to develop science and innovation partnerships that promote the economic development and social welfare of developing countries. In the Philippines, Researcher Links is co-funded by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).

Researcher Links Workshops

Researcher Links Workshops bring together early-career researchers from the UK and the Philippines to allow them to make international connections that can improve the quality of their research and open doors to new international opportunities.

Here you can find all research workshops in the Philippines under Researcher Links and the Newton Fund. The workshops give researchers the opportunity to form new international connections.
