The purpose of the matching service is to help find partners in a relevant subject area from the other jurisdiction.

As the funding is for a collaborative project, a minimum of two partners is required;  one of the lead partners must be a SCoTENS member institution in the South and one of the lead partners must be a SCoTENS member institution in the North. Other partners (e.g. schools or NGOs) do not necessarily have to be members of SCoTENS, but the application should make clear why their involvement is important to the project.

How it works…

If you need a partner, please complete the application form here.

The completed form will then be posted on the relevant  web page, depending on whether you are seeking a northern or southern partner,  along with your basic details.

Anyone who is looking for a partner in that jurisdiction can then see what your subject area is and click through to the full form to find your contact details.

NOTE: The Matching Service is set up to facilitate people finding potential research partners by providing information about those who are also looking. SCoTENS is not responsible for arranging introductions or meetings etc. – you must make the initial contact with a potential partner.

*Please notify Anthony Soares at once you have found a suitable partner, so your details can be removed from the webpage.
