Launch of the 2019 WUN Research Development Fund
WUN is pleased to announce that the Research Development Fund (RDF) 2019 round is now open.
In its eleventh year, the RDF provides researchers in WUN universities with grants of up to £10,000 to foster research collaborations across the network. Grants are offered to support projects within the scope of the four WUN Global Challenges.
“RDF support is intended to help investigators launch collaborative projects that capitalize on distinctive research strengths within the network”, said Professor Peter Lennie, Executive Director of WUN. “The partnership enables us to assemble an unrivalled constellation of strengths that, through the RDF, can be powerfully brought to bear on problems of real consequence.”
Maastricht University leading alliance to create one of the very first “European Universities”
WUN member Maastricht University, which leads the Young Universities for the Future of Europe alliance, has recently been awarded a large grant by the European Commission to set up one of the very first models of European Universities. WUN is strengthened when our member universities extend their reach internationally, and we congratulate Maastricht University on this notable achievement.
