Researchers discuss methods

NCRM International Visitor Exchange Scheme

The National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM) is pleased to invite applications for the first round of its International Visitor Exchange Scheme (IVES) with 6 awards of up to £5,000 each. The scheme provides for incoming and outgoing visiting scholar awards. The incoming visiting scholar awards are for noted overseas experts working at the forefront of key methodological areas to visit a UK centre of methodological excellence. The outgoing visiting scholar awards will enable early and mid-career researchers from the UK to visit a centre of methodological excellence outside the UK.

The NCRM IVES awards are intended to provide flexible support for a programme of activity with the objective of advancing methodological understanding and practice in the social sciences. Activities which might constitute an IVES programme of activity include (but are not limited to): focussed research projects, development of collaborative research proposals, research events and seminars, the provision of training and related workshops. IVES is aimed at enabling UK social scientists to engage with methods development internationally, in order to stimulate debate and develop ideas (with associated outputs) in relation to methodological innovation in the social sciences.

For more information and to apply visit the International Visitor Exchange Scheme webpage. The deadline for applications is 25 September 2015.
