International research collaboration is essential for the global knowledge economy. A shared research interest can help build trust and relationships between people from very different backgrounds and cultures.
In response to this, and taking advantage of our position as an international cultural relations organisation with global expertise in higher education, we have launched the British Council Researcher Links initiative, in partnership with various research and higher education organisations around the world.
In Morocco we have partnership with the National Center for Scientific and Technical Research (CNRST).
Researcher Links consists of workshops and travel grants, both with a focus on early career researchers. Successful workshops are taking place between 2013 and 2016.
