WUN Research Development Fund

The WUN Research Development Fund (RDF) is an annual scheme that provides one year of seed funds to foster research collaborations among WUN members by supporting exploratory activities (e.g. workshops, visits and exchanges) with a view to launching larger and more impactful projects. The research topics should address one or more of the four Global Challenges (Global Higher Education and Research, Public Health, Responding to Climate Change, and Understanding Cultures).


RDF 2020

Application for RDF 2020 is closed. The call for RDF 2021 will be announced around August 2021.
