SFC Saltire European Research Exchanges

Scottish flag of white cross on blue background, merged with the European flag of yellow stars on a blue background. Symbolising collaboration between Scotland and Europe. Words overlain: “SFC Saltire Emerging Researcher Scheme: ScotCHEM European Exchanges”

Enabling ScotCHEM researchers to collaborate with colleagues in EU Member States, and EEA and EFTA countries will bring benefits not only to individual researchers and their research groups but also to Scotland’s research ecosystem. Growing relationships and attracting talent to Scotland is a key aim of the scheme.

ScotCHEM is also delighted to be coordinating Team Saltire – supporting the Saltire exchange awardees across all disciplines. The team Saltire launch will take place on Tuesday 22nd February 2022.
