As we emerge from the pandemic, there has never been a better time to take forward opportunities to collaborate with, and learn from, international colleagues in relation to our research and teaching. This webinar explains the main initiatives at UoB to support international mobility for academic and professional services staff. This includes support for our staff to travel overseas and funding for international colleagues to spend time with us in Birmingham.
The Global Connections webinar includes information about the following initiatives:
- Birmingham International Engagement Fund
- Erasmus+ Staff Mobility Scheme
- Visiting Fellow Awards
- The Fulbright Awards
It also covers the forthcoming Commonwealth Fellowships in celebration and support of our role as Official Partner of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham 2022 and Queen’s Baton Relay. It is relevant both for those who are new to these opportunities and those who have some knowledge but want to understand the current criteria and application process.
The session is one of series being organised by Birmingham Global and academic Global Engagement leads to introduce current global initiatives.
