Members of WUN at AGM

Worldwide Universities Network

We are proud to be a founder member of the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN). It's a partnership of 22 research-led universities with members in Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, Latin America and North America, working together to promote research and teaching collaborations beyond the scope of an individual university.

Activities

WUN activities aim to strengthen international research and teaching collaboration, using virtual networking tools, conferences and workshops.  Many WUN collaborations produce resources for use in teaching, such as access to video seminars. Academic staff, early stage researchers, and postgraduate students are encouraged to visit other institutions to access expertise and world class facilities.

Funding

Funding is available to support activities with WUN partners.  This includes the Research Mobility Programme as well as local and central WUN Research Development Fund.

WUN does not fund research projects directly, but provides 'seed corn' funding to help collaborations become self-sustaining.

Research success

The WUN Cognitive Communications Consortium promises to revolutionise the way wireless communication devices and networks behave.

The WUN Spintronics Consortium believes the impact of spintronics could eventually be comparable to the development of the transistor 50 years ago.
