Newton Fund welcomes Peru

The British and Peruvian governments have launched the Newton-Paulet Fund aimed at supporting joint work by researchers from the two countries to boost development.

The fund, named after the Peruvian inventor Pedro Paulet, is seeking joint proposals in three main areas: health, especially malnutrition and anaemia; clean water, including the impact of shrinking glaciers; and the biodiversity and geography of Peru.

Peru has become the fifth South American country to join the Newton Fund, following Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico. A total of 18 countries are participating in the initiative, which supports collaborative research carried out by researchers in the UK and developing countries aiming to address challenges to their development.
