Birmingham International Engagement Fund

The University of Birmingham is keen to develop meaningful global research links and, as a result, has created the Birmingham International Engagement Fund (BIEF). The BIEF allows University of Birmingham academics to seek funding for international travel to establish and develop research activity and engagement.

Although our partnerships are wide ranging and span all continents, we have identified North America as one of our key strategic regions in which we wish to develop more focused engagement and applications involving collaborators from North America are strongly encouraged.


Applications to the fund can be made through the online application form.

Full details of the criteria and procedures for the BIEF can be found here.

Please note that only University of Birmingham staff can apply to the BIEF.
