A new scheme for overseas researchers to come to the UK

This new ‘UKRI-Science, Research and Academia’ scheme allows non-EEA researchers, scientists and academics to come to work to the UK for up to two years.

It will be operated by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and will mean that they, along with 12 approved research organisations, such as the Natural History Museum, will be able to directly sponsor highly skilled individuals to work and train in the UK.
