The Global Partnerships Award aims to promote the strategic priorities of the University of Southampton and to raise the University’s international profile.
The Global Partnerships Award seeks to provide ‘seed funding’ for joint international research or education-related activities with an international dimension that are at an early stage of development. Funding is offered for projects of up to 12 months' duration.
The primary funding streams are Research and Education. Research activities must involve joint work between the University of Southampton and at least one partner university outside the UK. Education activities should aim to promote internationalisation either through the teaching curriculum or other relevant activities.
Typical partners include:
Partnerships with other institutions will also be considered.
A fund of £30k will be available to support Global Partnerships Award projects taking place in 2017 and 2018. The awards are open to all University of Southampton staff.
The application form and guidance are available on the Global Funding Opportunities Sharepoint site.
The deadline for applications is 2 April 2017.
In the last four years 26 completed and current projects have been funded.
