University Global Partnership Network Research Collaboration Fund

2022 Call for Proposals

The UGPN exists to create a foundation for international collaboration enabling academics and students from world-leading universities to work together on issues of global importance. Its members are North Carolina State University (NC State), the Universidade de São Paulo (USP), the University of Surrey (UOS) and the University of Wollongong (UOW). The RCF supports international activities leading to high-quality research collaborations between UGPN partner institutions.

For the RCF 2022 call, the network would particularly welcome proposals which:

  • contribute to research areas ‘Sustainable Planet’ or ‘Industries for the Future’ and/or;
  • are multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary across STEM/Social Sciences/ Humanities

Funding of up to US$10,000 (or the approximate AU$, £, R$ equivalent) per participating university will support costs for: travel and subsistence associated with researchers spending time at partner institutions, organizing workshops (virtual or face to face), consumables directly related to the project, and costs for dissemination of results (publication, media, etc.).

For further information and to make an application, please visit the members area of the UGPN website.
