Collaborative Gearing Scheme

About the Scheme

The Collaborative Gearing Scheme (CGS) facilitates collaborative fieldwork opportunities between BAS research teams and Higher Education Institutes (or other Research Council Institutes, or approved Independent Research Organisations) where no additional funding is required for salaries, grants or direct science costs.

The scheme enables access to field activities that are already included in a BAS science project. A letter of support from the appropriate BAS Science Leader is required.

Submission deadline: 4 p.m. on Tuesday 31st March 2015 (for applications for fieldwork support during the 2015 /16 field season)
