Networking Partnership Awards 2022

We are delighted to announce the 2022-23 call for Networking Partnership Awards

CBRL is happy to offer Networking Partnership Awards for 2022-23. These awards are offered towards the establishment or development of research partnerships in the humanities, social sciences, and related disciplines between the UK and Levant-based researchers (Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria) at any career stage. CBRL will consider applications for research on contemporary issues in Egypt, only where they include a regional component relevant to the Levant.

Funds are available to support researchers undertaking initial exploratory meetings or research, with a view to preparing a later application for funding from a research council, the British Academy or similar. Awards may be used to cover round tables, seminars, and/or initial exploratory research costs, including travel. CBRL can facilitate successful applications through the involvement of its local staff and facilities, as appropriate.

Full details, including direct costs of primary research, eligibility, partnership details and how to apply can be found in the CBRL Networking Partnership Award Guidance Notes.

The following items are not eligible for support:

  • institutional overheads
  • computer hardware
  • books
  • permanent resources or equipment
  • publication costs
  • payment in lieu of salary, or for personal maintenance at home
  • replacement teaching costs
  • expenses for lecture tours or attendance at conferences

The level of individual awards will not usually exceed £2,500.

This is a rolling call, assessed by the CBRL research committee and institute directors. We will aim to make a decision on applications within three weeks.
