CUHK-University of Manchester Research Fund – Strategic Research Fund

(For CUHK and UoM faculty)

Deadline: 23:59 GMT, 6 January 2020, Monday

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and The University of Manchester (UoM) share a common vision to expand the frontiers of knowledge and contribute to the betterment of societies. To capitalise on the research strengths of both world-class universities and to create greater impact, a joint CUHK-UoM Research Fund was established in 2015–16 to build and strengthen research collaboration between the two universities. Twelve projects have been supported thus far.

In recognition of the success achieved, the two universities have developed a Strategic Research Fund. The new fund supports larger projects in areas of strategic fit for both institutions that will foster high level collaboration, particularly for future joint bids to large-scale external funding sources. Projects must align with one of the following areas of mutual research strengths of CUHK and UoM: China Studies, Translational Biomedicine, and Environment and Sustainability (Please refer to Appendix 1 of the Programme Guidelines for details).
