Funding opportunity for research and networking activities related to China

26 Apr 2018

Applications are invited for Research, Impact & Collaboration Enrichment (RICE) contributions of up to £2,000 for research projects with focus on China

The Confucius Institute expects to contribute to the costs of research, networking and knowledge exchange events led by academic members of staff across all faculties at the University.

Supported projects will be of international and interdisciplinary nature and be of interest to academic and non-academic audiences alike. 

Although this is an open call, we expect projects to demonstrate engagement and clear links with the Manchester2020 Strategic Plan and the Chinese Government's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI)[1].

To apply, please download the CI RICE application form.

If you wish to discuss your project informally, please contact the Director of the Confucius Institute, Dr Deljana Iossifova ( in the first instance. 

Applications close 15 May.
