International learning and exchange has demonstrably positive impacts on educational outcomes, future employability and research collaboration, with these benefits even more pronounced for participants from widening participation backgrounds.
Taith will offer a comprehensive range of mobilities for the higher education sector, across all disciplines and with a wide range of sectors, all whilst promoting Wales, and the Welsh language and culture throughout the world.
Researchers can gain valuable skills and experience by undertaking placements and collaborating with partners abroad. Taith provides opportunities for the circulation of skills and ideas internationally, whilst also helping to develop researchers’ professional development and academic performance. Participants can utilise funding to exchange best international practice within their fields and improve research standards in Wales and establish or develop links and collaborate with international partners to build valuable research partnerships.
Any Welsh higher education institution (HEI) regulated or funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) can apply. We also accept applications from higher education providers who operate in Wales, whose courses have been specifically designated for the purposes of being eligible for student support.
Eligible participants for Higher Education Research activities can be researchers employed by the sending organisation on an academic contract, postgraduate research students, including, but not limited to PhD students, registered and enrolled at the sending organisation, staff employed by the applying organisation supporting research activities, such as technicians, or other research specific professional services staff employed by the applying organisation.
