International research collaboration

Through the ongoing BTG programme Swansea University researchers can apply for funding for travel to engage with interdisciplinary researchers and projects on an international scale with the Grenoble based universities and HE institutions.

Grants will be awarded for research groups to develop their international profile and research initiatives which would be stimulated or enhanced through collaboration and exchange with the University of Grenoble.
