York is a founding member of the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN), a leading global Higher Education network comprising 15 research-led universities across 5 continents.
WUN members work together to develop multilateral and multidisciplinary research projects which address global challenges such as adapting to climate change, furthering cultural understanding, and responding to the opportunities and challenges of globalisation itself. Collaborations involve non-WUN universities and industrial partners.
To support collaborations, WUN pump-primes activities aimed at establishing innovative research groups and enabling them to become sustainable.
York's membership of WUN extends the scope for research collaborations in important areas of social and economic impact.
