WUN Development & Funding
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 with a view to stimulating larger projects that will strengthen WUN and making the collaborating partners competitive for major external grants. The research topics normally address one or more of the one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and fall within the scope of the Global Challenges (Global Higher Education and Research, Public Health, Responding to Climate Change, and Understanding Cultures).
Internal application to RDF 2022 is closed. Applications for RDF 2023 will be announced in July 2023. Please click here for information on the last call.

- Global Scholarship Programme for Research Excellence (for PhD students)
- PhD Student Exchange Programme

PhD students and faculty members are encouraged to utilise these schemes to support their new or existing collaborations with WUN member universities. For more information, please click here.
