Newton Funding for Indian, Chinese and South African researchers
ISIS has been awarded funds as part of the UK Government’s Newton Fund to support researchers from China, India and South Africa to use ISIS.
ISIS is able to support a limited number of experiments each round from users from these three countries. For supported experiments we can fund up to two researchers to come to ISIS for the experiment, and will pay for economy flights, accommodation and food costs for those researchers. Accommodation arrangements should be made through the ISIS user office, who will also provide a per diem amount for food; claims for flights should also be made through the user office and require supporting receipts.
To apply for Newton Funding for an ISIS experiment, please tick the box on page 3 of the ISIS online proposal system saying that you would like funding when you are creating your beamtime application (this mechanism will be available from ISIS round 16/2 onwards – for experiments approved before then, please contact Philip King to ask about the possibility of funding).
