Please note that applications for the Worldwide Universities Network Research Mobility Programme 2017-18 are now closed. The next round of applications will open May 2018.
The Research Mobility Programme (RMP) is an opportunity for staff or postgraduate researchers in any academic discipline to bid for funding to visit any Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) international partner. The visit can be anything from a week to 6 months duration.
The aim of the RMP is to support the development of international networks and long- term research links with WUN partners, exchange expertise and share access to specialised facilities. Funds for the RMP come directly from the Global Engagement office budget. All WUN members waive any fees associated with the RMP, which are typically short visits.
Awards are worth up to a maximum of £2,500 and cover economy air travel, visa, accommodation, and subsistence costs.
Conditions of the award
Successful applicants will be informed in August and must take up their award by the end of the following July. Receipts will be required to show how funding was spent.
Within a month of return, all awardees will be required to complete a brief report about the visit. The report should include:
