Workshop theme: "Conservation of natural resources in coastal ecosystems for the benefit of humankind and global balance".

‘British Council Researcher Links’ is a programme to provide opportunities for early career researchers from the UK and internationally to interact, learn from each other and develop opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations.

This workshop will provide a forum designed to build relationships between early career researchers with overlapping interests, to promote collaboration that links the UK and Malaysia. Thus there will be a focus on building links for future collaborations and participants will be selected on the basis of their research potential and ability to build longer term projects.

The coordinators and other mentors will act as moderators for group discussions among participants and provide logistical advice for developing longer-term projects to continue beyond the workshop.

  • Applications must be submitted using the Researcher Links application form.
  • Application must be submitted by the deadline: 29 November 2015.
  • Demonstrable research experience and expertise relevant to the theme and coastal ecosystems.
