International Partnership Fund 2018-19 is now open

Warwick is committed to being a leading global research and teaching institution with an international outlook. We believe in the value of building mutually beneficial partnerships which give our academics a foundation for collaboration in research and teaching, and our students the opportunity to broaden their international perspective.

We don’t underestimate the complexities of working with an institution within another country and have a range of funding schemes which support our academics to build collaborations across the world. We are delighted to invite applications for the University's International Partnership Fund, which is designed to support the development of strategic partnerships in geographical locations which warrant specific financial support.
