The AHRC promotes international links at many levels: from policy through to research funding and researcher links.
The AHRC encourages international engagement as an integrated part of its standard funding schemes and operates a number of partnerships with international research funders. We maintain a blog, Research Beyond Borders, on funding opportunities for international research collaboration specific to UK arts and humanities researchers. This covers not only AHRC funding but signposts other opportunities.
