The UK is among the world’s top research nations, but its research base can only thrive if it engages with the best minds, organisations and facilities wherever they are placed in the world. A thriving research base is essential to maintain competitiveness and to bring benefit to the society and economy of the UK.
This international section provides an introduction to RCUK’s international activities which are linked to individual Research Council websites to enable you to find further information on relevant topics such as:
RCUK International Strategy: through the Strategy, we outline the ways in which RCUK helps the best researchers work together, wherever they are in the world
International Funding: information on how RCUK supports international collaboration such as the RCUK/FAPESP Memorandum of Understanding and the China-UK Cooperation Programme in Global Priorities.
International Activities: case studies which demonstrate the breadth of RCUK activity and how they support the RCUK international strategy.
By working together through Research Councils UK, we can take an overview of the UK's research involvement with other countries, looking across all disciplines, and provide a coordinated approach and a single point of contact.
