Within the framework of the strategic partnership between the University of Twente and the University of Münster, the executive boards of the two universities have expressed their mutual interest in stimulating strategic joint research initiatives to enhance opportunities for collaboration.
The UT-WWU Strategic Collaboration Grants aim to support joint research initiatives that focus on strengthening the international reputation and standing of both universities and facilitating access to new stakeholders (e.g. relevant international strategic networks, industrial and governmental parties) and third-party funding.
Each UT-WWU collaboration grant consists of up to € 80,000 (for a maximum of 12 months) to initiate or intensify bilateral research cooperations. The grant could be used to fund, for example, a (joint) position, special equipment, or networking events for the gathering of new consortia, or to secure the participation of industrial parties/companies in a joint, third-party funding application.
Deadline for submission is 5 October 2020 - 17:00 CET.
More information, application conditions and the proposal template can be found on the website of the grants office.
