In an effort to increase research collaboration and strengthen relations between Higher Education Institutes in Mexico and the UK the MX-UK Visiting chair was established.
The mobility grant allows travel between 12 UK and 12 Mexican universities. The visiting chair provides mobility funding for a research visit of up to two weeks. Dr Jon Shaw has been selected as the University of Sheffield recipient and will be visiting National Polytechnic Institute (IPN) in Mexico City and Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM) in Toluca. While there Jon will be trying to establish research links, attending a workshop and delivering a series of lectures.
