Regional Collaborations in Academic Water Research

Closing Date: 15/10/2022

Funding to support and promote research institutes in the UK, Israel and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region seeking to collaborate on academic research on water use and water security.

The British Council and the UK Science and Innovation Network in Israel have launched a call for proposals to strengthen and support collaborations in regional water research involving research institutes in the UK, Israel and Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The programme is not intended to fund research directly, rather to support the development of partnerships and networks, preparation for research, and the communication and application of research.

Projects should involve one or more of the following:

  • Promote collaborative research at the planning stage by, for example, creating new networks, and collaborating on grant submissions and funding opportunities.
  • Facilitate research through projects such as (virtual or face-to-face) meetings, symposia, conferences, new collaborations and sharing research facilities.
  • Apply research via activities including policy work, technology transfer and collaborations with industry and third sector organisations.
  • Communicate academic research to students, public audiences and other relevant groups with, for example, shared courses and teaching programmes, and public activities.

Projects must fit one or more of the themes of water research, including but not limited to:

  • Irrigation
  • Water purification
  • Groundwater studies
  • Sanitation
  • Biological and physicochemical water and wastewater treatment
  • Food security
  • Education
  • Monitoring
  • Climate change adaptation
