Global Engagement Fund - other sources

The Birmingham International Engagement Fund (BIEF)

This is for staff to request funding for international travel to establish global research links and develop research activity or engagement. 

The full details on this are on the Birmingham Global funding opportunities webpage, which also highlights other potential sources of funding including the BRIDGE and EUniWell seed funds.

Please be aware that only UoB staff can make and application to the BIEF.  These are reviewed by the College Director of Global Engagement (Prof Tracy Roberts).  Note: it is expected that local sources of funds, including research projects (where applicable) and College contributions via the MDS Global Engagement Fund should be requested before submitting a full application for BIEF support.

Various funding opportunities are available as part of the U21 Health Sciences Group of which UoB is a member.  Funding is available for staff and research students undertaking collaborative projects across multiple health themes, working in partnership with at least three member universities.

MDS Parents and Carers Fund

This fund is to provide support towards additional costs incurred through attendance at external events (such as conferences and training courses) for staff with caring responsibilities. The fund is available to all MDS for staff and PhD students.

Local Institute or School funding sources 

Finally, for conference attendance support covering costs which are not directly funded by external research projects, please make contact with your Institute Director, Head of School or Head of Operations.  They will be able to provide advice on any available Institute or School level funds.  Note that normally these have a focus on supporting earlier-career colleagues or those without access to other sources of funds.
