WUN Research Development Fund 2024


WUN is pleased to announce that the Research Development Fund (RDF) 2024 round is now open. In its sixteenth year, the RDF provides researchers at member universities with grants of up to £10,000 to foster research collaborations across the network.

WUN Research Development Fund 2024

Since 2009 the WUN Research Development Fund (RDF) has directly invested over £3 million to establish research projects on problems of global significance, and on which researchers from member universities, working together, can make real progress.

The RDF 2024 Round continues WUN’s commitment to supporting research that addresses sustainable development.  The RDF 2024 Guidelines, have been developed following consultation with the WUN Academic Advisory Group.

Proposals may be submitted only by researchers at WUN member universities, and must be endorsed by the local WUN Academic Advisory Group member. Proposals are welcome from researchers across all career stages, with projects led by early career researchers are especially encouraged.

Applications must be completed on our online application portal by Friday 18 October 2023 at 21.00 UK time.  Please note, however, that each university has its own internal deadlines.  If you are considering submitting a proposal, you should first contact your local WUN Coordinator.
