WUN Research Development Fund 2018 - Deadline October 5, 2018

The RDF provides grants of up to £10,000 , for one year, to augment institutional funds in fostering research collaborations among academic staff (faculty members) at partner universities. The RDF supports work within the four WUN Global Challenges that lie at the heart of our mission: Responding to Climate Change, Public Health (non-communicable diseases), Global Higher Education and Research, and Understanding Cultures.

Research on the Global Challenges is supported by four Global Challenge Steering Groups, whose priorities are informed by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The RDF provides a mechanism for the Steering Groups to stimulate research initiatives.

Grants from the RDF are intended to help launch larger projects that will strengthen WUN. Funds may be used to support such things as exploratory research initiatives, planning workshops, faculty exchanges and the formation of collaborative networks.
