Global Grants and Funds for Research

Research Development Fund

The Research Development Fund (RDF) is an annual competitive fund aimed at bringing together researchers to undertake innovative, high-quality, sustainable research that addresses the four WUN global challenges. The RDF provides grants of up to £10,000 to foster research collaborations among academic staff members at WUN partner universities. The WUN prioritizes collaborations that align with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. A successful RDF project can help establish productive partnerships and networks that could form the basis of a proposal for a larger funding opportunity!

Each Global Challenge has networks of researchers working on a number of topics and sub-themes. WUN members can also bring in a topic themselves and create a network of WUN researchers. For more information on its existing research projects, please visit the WUN website.

The Research Collaboration Fund!

The UGPN Research Collaboration Fund (RCF) has been an integral part of the network since its inception in 2011.
