Call for Trilateral Water Research Proposals -STREAM (Science, Technology & Research Exchange Across MENA)

Application submission for the British Council Institutional Links Call has closed.  

Chosen applications shall be announced early 2017.

The Call invites joint, trilateral bids from researchers in the UK, Israel and the MENA region to undertake a 10 – 18 month collaborative water research project. 

We are looking for innovative three-country projects that use experimental, natural and social science research for the benefit of some of the world’s most water poor societies. 

Research proposals should meet the aims of the call:

• Fostering excellent science and technology in the MENA region by enabling world-class research in water science, technology and policy; 

• Contributing to a culture of collaboration and cooperation in the MENA; and 

• Creating and supporting sustainable research projects implemented in some of the world’s most water poor societies in MENA leading to a marked increase in successful uptake of research and appropriate technology.
