The International Collaboration Fund (ICF) supports exploratory research initiatives, targeted workshops, faculty exchanges, and the formation of collaborative networks with the potential of long-term, sustainable research collaborations. The ICF prioritizes collaboration amongst the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN), of which UR is a member.
AS&E faculty should first consult Todd St. Vrain about new WUN projects as well as any new initiative that is non-WUN related. Applications for the 2012-2013 round of WUN seed funding for research projects have now closed. The next round of WUN matching grants projects will open in September 2013.
The WUN has more than 85 active Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs) which are open to UR researchers. Contact Todd. St Vrain, Manager for International Initiatives and UR’s WUN Coordinator, who can facilitate introductions to the research groups.
