CUHK-University of Manchester Research Fund
(For CUHK and UoM faculty)
Deadline: 17:00 GMT, 12 March 2018, Monday
The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and the University of Manchester (UoM) are leading research universities which have expanded the frontiers of knowledge and contributed to the betterment of societies. To capitalise on the research strengths of both universities and to create greater impact of research, a joint CUHK-UoM Research Fund is established to build and strengthen research collaboration between the two universities.
The purpose of the fund is to enable academic staff at both institutions to undertake short-term exchange visits to deepen and extend collaborative research links, and to jointly define new research questions, with a view to enabling collaborators to subsequently make joint proposals to external funding agencies for the next phase of their research.
The priority areas are Cancer, Neuroscience, Energy and Climate Change, Future Cities, Advanced Materials, and Global Inequalities. Other areas where there is mutual interest from researchers may also be considered.
