UK-China Visiting Fellowships

Overview

The UC4G project is organised into 6 work packages (WPs). WP2 aims to promote full interactions of UK and Chinese consortium members by exchanging 30 researchers, preferably academic staff, and forming UK-China collaboration partnerships. The 30 UK-China Visiting Fellowships will be awarded to eligible researchers for visiting one or multiple UC4G consortium members in the other country for up to 3 months. The Visiting Fellowships aim to provide seed money for collaborative research that will forge long-term sustainable collaboration between the corresponding partners, promote knowledge transfer from academia to industry and between the UK and China, and commercialise some of the research through developing industrial links and securing industry and other funding. Significant outcomes are expected from WP2, such as joint publications, (B)4G standard proposals, project and IPR applications, which will serve as an excellent platform for the UK-China Joint R&D Centre to be established.
 
A fellowship award sponsors an eligible researcher to visit one or multiple UC4G consortium members in the other country (UK or China). The funding for each fellowship is in maximum £6,690, which covers travel costs (including visa fees) of up to £800 for a single visit, bench fees of up to £1,000, and accommodation/subsistence of £4,890 for up to 3 months (£1,630 per month). 
 
WP2 UK-China Visiting Fellowships are awarded in serveral rounds. A Call for Proposal is distributed at the beginning of every round. All submitted applications are then reviewed by at least 3 Project Management Committee (PMC) or Industrial Steering Group (ISG) members before the final decision of award is made by the PMC. This assessement procedure is to make sure that only proposals with technical excellennce and industrial relavance will be funded.
 
A total of 23 Visiting Fellowships have been awarded in the first 4 rounds of WP2 applications, among them 11 have been awarded to UK-based researchers and 12 have been awarded to China-based researchers. An additional 7 Visiting Fellowships are to be awarded in the 5th round to develop a UK-based UC4G wireless testbed and demonstrate (B)4G technolgoies (WP4 tasks).
