Workshops about our calls with Mexico under the Newton Fund

Attend a workshop to learn about the British Council - CONACyT calls within the Newton Fund in Mexico

We recently opened two calls in Mexico under the Newton Fund, along with our Mexican partners CONACyT. The British Council's lead for the Newton Fund in Mexico, Liliana Carral, will be hosting three workshops in the UK during July and August (dates and locations below) to discuss these opportunities. 

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 have your questions answered.
