In its first round of funding, the Partnership is supporting £2m (€2.2m) of research across nine projects.
These research projects link to four of the Partnership's themes and include initiatives to tackle serious health problems and solutions to global sustainability.
- Research using state-of-the-art imaging technology to understand how immune cells regulate their metabolism and use this to tackle diseases like breast cancer and the parasitic disease leishmaniasis, in which York and Maastricht already have world-leading expertise.
- Work to bring together world-class scanning technology to understand how information flows through the brain and apply this to our response to ageing and mental health challenges.
- A significant investment to support responsible data science, designing new approaches to handling personal data that could restore public trust and confidence in how major corporations handle personal information.
- A partnership between York and Maastricht’s centres of excellence in global development that will investigate development transformations in the context of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and their challenge of ‘Leaving No One Behind’.
