Manchester-Melbourne-Toronto (MMT) Research Fund
The MMT Research Fund is the first major initiative of our new trilateral alliance and is open to applications from all research areas.
About the fund
The MMT Research Fund is the first major initiative of our new trilateral alliance with the University of Melbourne and the University of Toronto, which aims to achieve a step change in collaboration between the three partners, drawing on joint expertise and resources.
Funding is available from each of the three institutions to develop bilateral or trilateral research projects. Proposals may include targeted research support such as joint workshops, researcher exchanges, and the formation or development of a collaborative network.
The fund is open to applications from all research areas. Proposals that aim to provide opportunities for jointly awarded PhDs at a future stage are encouraged.
There are currently no open calls.
Sign-up to the International Partnerships newsletter to be notified when new calls are announced.
