In 2009, the Royal Society of Chemistry signed a cooperation agreement with the State Administration for Foreign Experts Affairs (SAFEA), a division of the Chinese Government. As part of a wider governmental initiative to enhance the global impact of Chinese science and China’s higher education institutions, the RSC and SAFEA provide funding for a Visiting Researchers Programme. This encourages academics from the UK to visit Chinese universities to share best practice, advise Chinese researchers on presenting their research to an international audience and to stimulate collaboration between UK and Chinese institutions.
 
This blog provides a space for participants to share their experiences and for the RSC to highlight the opportunities that stem from the SAFEA programme.

Call For Applications: Visiting Researchers To Visit China In 2016

The State Administration for Foreign Experts Affairs (SAFEA) is a division of the Chinese Government with which RSC has a cooperation agreement. Under this agreement the RSC and SAFEA will jointly fund researchers from the UK to visit Chinese Universities. The purpose of the visits is to stimulate collaboration between UK and Chinese institutions. They will allow the visitor to contribute their experience towards the development of excellent emerging science and build links with the Chinese Chemistry community.
 
In addition, the visitor will advise Chinese research groups on all aspects of presenting their research to an international audience. The programme will strengthen links between the UK and Chinese Science and between the RSC and our partners in China.
 
We would be very grateful if you could please send us the following information as part of your application:
•             Detailed CV containing your career progress
•             A letter detailing your objectives and what you hope to achieve in China
•             Current research interests, especially areas where you wish to collaborate
•             List of current collaborators in China (If any)
•             List of your current and past publications
•             Preferred dates to travel to China

Call for applications are open until the 21st September 2015 for RSC members based in the UK and Ireland. Visit usually lasts up to a week. The Royal Society of Chemistry covers up to £1200 for international flights and visa and local costs are usually covered by the local Chinese host universities. Prior collaboration in China is not necessary because SAFEA and the RSC will work together to find appropriate Chinese University hosts. Please email: international@rsc.org to send your application for this programme.
