IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Grant opportunity for early career researchers
This element of Researcher Links is designed to provide financial support for early career 
researchers in the UK to spend up to three months in any partner country participating in the 
Researcher Links initiative, or for partner country researchers to come to the UK. The aim is to 
enhance and strengthen links for future collaboration, build research capacity in developing 
economies, and enhance the researchers’ career opportunities. The call is open to all researchers 
meeting the requirements listed below, including, but not limited to, participants in Researcher 
Links workshops. 
Proposals will be accepted in any discipline/multidisciplinary area including from the natural 
sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities, but some countries have specified areas which will 
be prioritized in the final selection process (see Annex 1). 
1. Who can participate? 
· Early Career Researcher 
The term 'early career researcher' refers to researchers at the beginning of their research 
careers. We would expect early career researchers to have been awarded their PhD not 
more than 10 years prior to applying for the Travel Grant, but allowances can be made for 
career breaks or other extenuating circumstances. If a researcher does not hold a PhD, but 
has research experience equivalent to a PhD holder and works in a field where a PhD is not 
a pre-requisite for established research activity, they will still be considered eligible1
Only one application may be submitted per researcher. Duplicate applications will not be 
eligible, even if they are to different countries. 
· Based in the UK or partner country 
The researcher must be based either in the UK, or in one of the partner countries listed 
below, and they must have a research or academic post (permanent or fixed-term) or 
fellowship (excluding visiting or honorary fellowship) at a recognised publicly funded research 
establishment, or public or private Higher Education Institution. The researchers can be of 
any nationality, but they must be able to secure a visa for the country which they plan to visit. 
Travel may only be between the UK and partner country, but can be in either direction. 
Partner Countries: Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Indonesia, 
Kazakhstan, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia (Social Sciences and 
Humanities only), South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey, United States of 
America (Humanities and Social Sciences only), Vietnam. 

Subsequent calls may have different partner countries involved .
