University of Wisconsin–Madison faculty and academic staff are invited to apply for grants of up to £15,000 (average £10,000) offered through the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) to launch longer-term research collaborations within the WUN Global Challenges.
The WUN consists of 19 research institutions (including UW–Madison) on six continents. This network creates multilateral opportunities for international collaboration in research and graduate education.
WUN-supported research activities focus on Global Challenges, which address issues of worldwide significance in these areas:
- Adapting to climate change
- Understanding cultures
- Global higher education and research
- Global public health and non-communicable disease
The WUN, through its Research Development Fund (RDF), is offering seed-funding grants of up to £15,000 (average £10,000), from an overall fund of approximately £200,000, for such activities as exploratory research initiatives, targeted workshops, faculty exchanges and the formation of collaborative networks.
