Invitation to attend workshop to learn about the CONACyT Newton Fund opportunities in Mexico

The Newton Fund promotes the economic development and welfare in partnering countries, through science and innovation partnerships. It aims to strengthen science and innovation capacity and unlock further funding to support poverty alleviation. It is managed by UK's Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, and delivered through 15 UK delivery partners in collaboration with 16 partner countries. 

We recently opened two calls in Mexico and we believe that your institution could benefit from those opportunities. For that reason we would like to invite you to attend one of the three workshops that our Head of Newton Fund Mexico will be hosting in the UK. The workshops will enable you to identify opportunities for collaboration in Mexico, will help you get a better understanding of the open calls and will be a unique opportunity to solve your doubts, especially about the Institutional Links call.
