CREST Researcher Mobility Scheme
To support the development of research skills linked to inter- and cross-disciplinary Research Clusters, CREST has created the Researcher Mobility Scheme, providing support for staff and PGRs working to engage with colleagues across the network.
The Mobility Scheme is available to support researchers at any point in their research careers in two ways:
funding available to support research conferences and seminars in a variety of subject areas that involve multiple CREST-member institutions.
travel bursaries for researchers accepted as presenters at research conferences and events and CREST member institutions and / or partners
The scheme encourages mobility and exchange of ideas, allowing individuals to identify colleagues working in complementary and, in some cases, convergent areas of research as well as to hone their communication skills.
Awards will be made on a competitive basis; applications for support for conferences will be made based on the recommendations of the CREST Research Group (comprised of Heads of Research from each of the 22 CREST institutions); applications to support researchers presenting at conferences at CREST members will be reviewed by CREST personnel.
If you are researching in a CREST member institution, or are planning a conference or event and would like further information, please contact the CREST Network Administrator.
