Newton Institutional Links provides grants for the development of research and innovation collaborations between the UK and the Philippines. The research facilitated by these grants tackles local development needs and challenges such as extreme weather conditions, access to affordable health care, food and energy security. The grants are intended to provide small-scale seed funding to:
- start and develop collaborations between academic groups, departments and institutions in partner countries and the UK
- support the exchange of expertise and research knowledge
- establish local hubs for UK-partner country activities
Newton Institutional Links is part of the Newton Agham Programme. This is part of the UK’s official development assistance programme.
