National and international visitor programme


Nominate your IMI Global Chair candidate

The Global Chairs visiting professorship scheme attracts distinguished, globally renowned scholars to engage in a programme of high-profile research activity at the University of Bath.

Global Chairs are nominated by a member of staff at the University of Bath, who acts as host during the visit. Visits last for 2-3 months in total, but this can be split into separate periods. Global Chairs will give a Public Lecture, as well as a number of research seminars or similar activities.

Nominations are currently open for the 2017-18 IMI Global Chair. The deadline for submitting your nomination form along with a full CV of the nominated candidate is Friday 31st March 2017.

Please get in touch to discuss your ideas for Global Chair nominees - or visit the Global Chairs web page for further information about the scheme and nomination procedure.
