The Newton Fund aims to develop science and innovation partnerships that promote the economic development and welfare of developing countries.

The fund is £75 million each year from 2014 for five years. We expect that the UK funding will lead to extra funding from:

  • partner countries
  • private foundations
  • multi-lateral organisations
  • corporate partners.

The fund will cover three broad categories of activity:

  • people: improving science and innovation expertise (known as ‘capacity building’), student and researcher fellowships, mobility schemes and joint centres
  • programmes: research collaborations on development topics
  • translation: innovation partnerships and challenge funds to develop innovative solutions on development topics.

The countries we can work with under the fund are: China, India, Brazil, South Africa, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Turkey, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Egypt and Kazakhstan.
