Newton Fund - Newcastle University

The Newton Fund Research and Innovation for Growth and Prosperity January 2016 The Vision The UK will use its strength in research and innovation to promote the economic development and social welfare of partner countries. By working together on bi-lateral and multi-lateral programmes with a research and innovation focus, the UK will build strong, sustainable, systemic relationships with partner countries. This will support the continued excellence of the UK research base and innovation ecosystem and will unlock opportunities for wider collaboration and trade.

Newton Advanced Fellowships Fellowships to support early to mid career researchers (up to 15 years post PhD). Researchers who have already established (or are well advanced in the process of establishing) a research group or research network Aim To support the development of their research strengths through collaboration and for more formalised training and development. Up to two years, with multiple short periods in the UK Fellowship will provide a salary top up, research support, training costs, exchange of staff and travel and subsistence (37k per year from the Academies + THB 1.5 million from TRF ) Cover Natural Sciences, Engineering, Social Sciences and Humanities (Human Sciences). Industry-Academia Partnership Programme

Lead applicant must be Thai University partnering with an industry organisation and a UK institution. The industry partner may also be considered as the UK institution if it is headquartered in the UK. Total funding of 10,000 50,000 over two years to support salary, travel and accommodation costs for activities and workshops o Industry-Academia cooperation - IAPP will fund collaboration projects between industry and academia organisations which will aim to enhance education or research outcomes in universities. o Disseminating learning - funds workshops to help spread good practices and escalate impact of the exchanges to a broader level. o Building UK Linkages - Projects must also include a UK partner institute academic or industry - to build innovation and engineering links between both countries.

Richard Syms is Professor of Microsystems Technology and Head of the Optical and Semiconductor Devices Group in the EEE Dept, Imperial College London. He has published widely on holography, guided wave optics, electromagnetics and microengineering, and has developed a wide range of microdevices, including miniature quadrupole mass spectrometers and RF probes for magnetic resonance imaging. In 2001, he co-founded the spin-out company Microsaic Systems, which manufactures the worlds only desktop electrospray mass spectrometer. He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Physics and the Institute of Electrical Engineers. Magneto-Inductive Waves and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Periodic structures have long been of interest in electrical engineering, and many different arrangements of reactive elements have been devised for signal transmission and filtering. Renewed interest in periodic electrical structures was sparked by the realisation they can act as artificial media with novel properties, such as negative permittivity, permeability or refractive index. Such has been the explosion of activity that metamaterials is now an entire field. Although many applications concentrate on exploitation of negative parameters (for example, perfect imaging and cloaking), other important engineering applications exist. In this talk, applications of a particular kind of metamaterial are described. This material supports magneto-inductive waves, which may easily be excited by precessing nuclear spins in magnetic resonance imaging. Theoretical background and experimental results are presented for passive and amplified MI waveguides. Applications in MRI are described, especially for patient protection in internal imaging. The long-term goal is early detection of cholangiocarcinoma (cancer of the biliary ductal system, which is epidemic in the Far East). 21
