Call for participants to UK-China Workshop on the Electrification of Road Transport (WERT18), 17-20 December 2018
Under the Researcher Links scheme offered within the Newton Fund, the British Council and the National Natural Science Foundation of China will be holding a workshop on the above theme in Tianjin, China on 17-20 December 2018. The workshop is coordinated by leading academics in Loughborough University, Heriot-Watt University, Imperial College London and Tianjin University. The programme, ‘British Council Researcher Links’ provides opportunities for early career researchers from the UK and internationally to interact, learn from each other and explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations. As part of this programme, we are now recruiting early career researchers to participate in the above workshop. The workshop will provide a unique opportunity for sharing research expertise and networking. During the workshops early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their research in the form of short oral presentation and discuss this with established researchers from the UK and partner countries. There will be a focus on building up links for future collaborations and participants selected on the basis of their research potential and ability to build longer term links.
The British Council and NSFC will cover the costs related to the participation to the workshop, including: travel (both international and local), accommodation and meals. Costs for the visa, and travel insurance will be covered; however participants will be responsible for making all the necessary arrangements. The British Council accepts no responsibility for any problems which may occur when the participants are in-country.
