Research Collaboration Call for Proposals 2021

Research Collaboration Call for Proposals 2021

The UGPN is pleased to announce the Research Collaboration Fund (RCF) call for proposals 2021.

The UGPN supports a Research Collaboration Fund (RCF) to foster international research collaborations, enabling staff to work together on areas of mutual interest. To date the fund has supported 72 bilateral, trilateral, and quadrilateral research projects, facilitating collaborative work in priority areas such as Environmental Air-Quality, Sustainability, Forensic Science, Health and Wellbeing, Quantum Materials and Entrepreneurship.

For each project, for each partner involved £10,000 is available, therefore, £20,000 is available for bilateral, £30,000 for trilateral and £40,000 for quadrilateral projects.  This year’s call for RCF proposals 2021 was opened at the end of the UGPN’s first ever virtual conference, on 25 March (GMT). Research proposals in all subject areas are welcome.

The deadline for proposal submissions is 21st June 2021.    

Researchers interested in submitting a proposal should visit the Members Area of the UGPN Website for more information.  To access this page, you will need your name and University of Surrey email address. This will bring you to the UGPN RCF 2021 Call for Project Proposals page where you can find further information on previous projects, guided notes and the application form itself.
