The Distinguished Visitor Programme aims to:
To nominate a visitor they must be research active and recognised world-leaders in an area of research complementary to that at Lancaster, and be based at an internationally leading overseas university.
The visits will support research that has clear potential to lead to new 4* quality research publications and/or new grants and to increase Lancaster's recognition and appeal for academic recruitment at all levels.
This funding will support visits of up to three months. Visits of less than a month can be supplemented by funding for follow-ups, such as by the distinguished visitor or a junior researcher from the same group to Lancaster.
The visitor is expected to deliver seminars/lectures during their stay at Lancaster and other leading UK universities as appropriate for the length of visit. For example, a three-month visit may involve a general colloquium for the University staff, 2-4 specialist lectures for young researchers and staff at Lancaster, and 1-2 seminars at leading UK universities.
You should discuss your application with the relevant panel chair prior to the deadline and they will help to develop the visit so that it benefits the Faculty and the University.
