Finding a UK Collaborator

If you would like assistance with identifying a potential UK collaborator for an open Newton Fund call, please complete the Partner Request Form below and upload the CV of the lead applicant. 

Based on your research interests and proposed topic for collaboration, we will then contact you to suggest UK researchers or research groups with similar research interests and expertise in your subject area, who may therefore be interested in collaborating. We can also list your request on our opportunities for collaboration grid.

Please note:
  • In order to be considered for Newton funding, your proposed research topic must demonstrate that it aims to contribute to the social welfare or economic development of the Newton Fund partner country. For a list of appropriate subject areas, please see the call guidelines of the call you are applying for.
  • Please complete the partner request form as soon as possible following the launch of the call and no later than four weeks before the call deadline; applicants should allow at least four weeks to secure a partner at a UK institution.‚Äč

Please only complete this form if there is an open call for which you meet the eligibility requirements. If you complete a form for a call that is not open or not currently inviting applications from your Newton partner country, UUKi will not be able to assist you. All open Newton Fund calls are listed here.

If you have any queries whilst completing this form, please email
