A research project entitled “The evolution of vegetation and biodiversity change during the Paleogene and early Neogene” will be jointly funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) of UK. The principal investigators are Dr. Su Tao of Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) and Prof. Paul Valdes with University of Bristol.
With the project number of No. 4161101253, the research program will receive RMB 2,940,000 from NSFC and 980,000 pounds on the NERC side. The tenure is four years, from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2020.
The program aims to understand the evolutionary processes of vegetation and biodiversity in south China and Tibetan?Plateau under paleo-climate change.
The Medical Research Council (MRC), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) are pleased to invite proposals to theUK-China AMR Partnership Initiative.
This initiative will provide funding for high quality collaborative research projects focused on addressing the growing global burden of antimicrobial resistance, specifically antibacterial resistance of clinical and veterinary relevance in China.
The UK-China AMR Partnership Initiative aims to provide support for joint Chinese and UK projects working in the area of antimicrobial resistance research, specifically antibacterial research in the context of challenges of particular relevance to China.
The objective is to deliver significant research funding for internationally competitive and innovative collaborative projects between scientists from China and the UK to enable the pursuit of shared research interests. The participating funding agencies welcome proposals that sit within or across the remits of the funding agencies participating in this call.
