CIM welcomes visitors to Warwick!

We welcome enquiries from established and early career academics and those working in government, industry or the third sector wishing to make long lasting connections with the Centre.

Format of visits

Visits may last for a few weeks up to six months full-time (or longer if part-time, for example, one day a week for a year) and are individually tailored. During your visit, you will be invited to engage with the Centre research environment by attending research seminars, Centre events and other activities. During your visit, normally you would be expected to contribute to some aspect of the Centre’s work, for example:

  • Contributing to blogs, academic articles, grant proposals
  • Developing curricula, teaching materials or running a masterclass
  • Hosting or contributing to seminars, lectures and workshops.

Acceptance as a Visiting Scholar/Fellow confers some university privileges such as library access and email access, although the Centre does not always have office space. There are, however, workspaces across campus, including within the main University Library, which is a three-minute walk from the Centre.

Opportunities for funded visits

There are several opportunities to apply for funded visits and collaborations. These are some examples, but other schemes may also be suitable:


The Centre especially welcomes enquiries from those working across government, industry and the third sector in the UK and internationally. We are keen to expand our network of contacts, so please get in touch to discuss possible ways of working together.

Application procedure

Postdoctoral scholars interested in visiting the Centre for a specific research purpose should directly contact the staff member(s) interested in that area. All other applicants should send a CV, a 1-page outline of what they will do during the visit. Applicants should explain how their interests intersect with those of the Centre and how their visit will be of mutual benefit. Enquiries should be made directly to the Director of Research & Impact, Professor Cagatay Turkay at
