Radboud-Glasgow Collaboration Fund

Published: 14 June 2019

Projects identified to receive £100,000 of funding from the universities of Radboud and Glasgow

April 2019 saw the inauguration of the joint Radboud-Glasgow Strategic Collaboration Fund. This is an exciting funding opportunity for our academics to work with colleagues at Radboud in developing joint research whereby they can apply for funds of up to £20,000 per group to support imaginative and innovative proposals.

We have received a fantastic response for the 2019-20 funding call with a total of 24 very strong applications from a wide range of disciplines in all four colleges. From these, seven successful projects have been identified and will be funded, with a total investment of £100,000 from both institutions.

These proposals represent the rich variety of research and teaching taking place across the University and we wish our colleagues who have been successful in applying for this funding good luck as they take forward their research proposals with their counterparts at Radboud University. Details of the successful recipients can be found here.

We would like to take this opportunity to thanks all colleagues who submitted applications to the scheme. Just about every proposal submitted was worthy of being funded and the team had to make difficult decisions based on the available resource. Given that the calibre of submissions was gratifyingly high, we hope any applicants who were not successful this year, will be encouraged to reapply in the future.

Funding for short-term mobility visits to Radboud University is still available. Applications are invited to apply for up to £2,000 per person to support their mobility proposal. For more details, visit the Radboud-Glasgow Collaboration webpage.
