We are relaunching our international funding schemes for activities starting in the 2022/23 academic year. Our international partnership funds pump-prime international collaborations in research and education, with the view of establishing sustainable partnerships.
We are delighted to invite applications for the latest round of the University's International Partnership Fund. The Fund is intended to encourage partnerships that will lead to the development of important global research collaborations with leading universities and research institutes.
The deadline for applications to be received is Friday 26 April 2019.
Professor Lorenzo Frigerio (Life Sciences) represented Warwick on a UK delegation to Colombia led by Universities UK International (UUKi) in June. The visit aimed to identify and facilitate opportunities for cooperation in teaching, research, postgraduate training and mobility. Alongside a focus on peace-building and transitional justice, the delegation also explored fast-developing opportunities for cooperation in research across the life sciences, social sciences and the arts and humanities. The Colombian Embassy in London then hosted a follow-up meeting in July (photo above). You can see a short film about the visit produced by the British Council here.
An academic delegation led by Academic Vice-President, Prof. Lawrence Young, visited Shanghai on 18-19 May 2017 in order to broaden and deepen Warwick's research and teaching links with university partners.
