May this email reach you while you are in the best of health and Iman by the grace of Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala.

Dear Dato’/Prof./Assoc. Prof./Dr.,

The British Council is inviting applications from UK institutions for research proposals, offering grants of up to £100,000 (£125,000 full economic costs), to collaborate with international partners through the Department of Science, Innovation, and Technology's International Science Partnerships Fund (ISPF).


Countries initially joining this call include Egypt, Indonesia, Kenya, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam. ISPF research collaboration grants provide small-scale seed funding for collaborations between the UK and the participating ISPF countries/territories in each call to:

  • initiate new research and innovation collaborations between academic groups, departments, and institutions in partner countries and the UK
  • develop existing collaborations at group, departmental, and institutional levels
  • encourage these collaborations to work with non-academic organizations and individuals to support the exchange of research and innovation expertise and the translation of research knowledge into tangible benefits
  • establish local hubs for UK- partner country/territory activity in a particular area, enabling engagement from the wider research and innovation community.

Who can apply

Both UK and international partner researchers must be leading researchers or established researchers.

In addition, UK researchers must be:

  • permanent employees at their institutions (emeritus and honorary professors may not apply as lead)
  • working at a not-for-profit higher education institution or eligible research organization with the capacity to undertake high-quality research.

Please see the 'Research Collaborations Guidance for Applicants' for additional criteria.
