Radboud Glasgow Collaboration Fund Outcome

The Radboud-Glasgow Joint Steering Committee is delighted to announce the successful recipients of the jointly funded Radboud-Glasgow Collaboration Fund for the academic year 2021-2022.

The Radboud-Glasgow Collaboration Fund is an exciting opportunity which allows colleagues across the University of Glasgow and Radboud University, located in the city of Nijmegen in the Netherlands, to work together to develop joint innovative research and learning & teaching opportunities across a broad range of disciplines and subject areas.

This year, five project groups were selected to receive funding, representing the rich diversity of joint activity taking place across the two institutions, with a total investment of £100,000.

The five groups will work together for a year to achieve the aims and objectives of each of their research projects which look to address the following issues:

  • Unravelling the biology of colorectal signet ring cell carcinoma: a first step towards better outcome
  • Discovering the chemical reaction networks of Life via remote experimental collaboration
  • Artificial Intelligent Based Damage Detection in Composite Materials
  • Mindfulness is associated with romantic relationship wellbeing, but why? In search of mechanisms
  • Collective responses to Covid-19: cultural work in times of crisis

More details on the successful recipients can be found on the Radboud-Glasgow Collaboration Fund Webpage.

The Radboud-Glasgow Collaboration Fund was first launched in early 2019 and since then, has funded 19 projects over three years.  It is overseen by the Radboud-Glasgow Joint Steering Committee, consisting of three senior members of staff from each institution, each of whom have been carefully identified from a wide variety of disciplines to ensure they represent the diverse nature of the collaboration taking place across the two institutions.  As the newly appointed Dean for Global Engagement for Europe, Prof Lorna Hughes, Professor in Digital Humanities, takes on the role of University of Glasgow Co-Chair for this committee. 

The 2022-2023 Funding Call is due to launch in early 2022.  Colleagues who are interested in getting involved or finding out more are encouraged to get in touch: externalrelations-partnershipfunding@glasgow.ac.uk
