Manchester-Melbourne Research Fund

The University of Manchester and the University of Melbourne have established a joint fund to deepen and extend collaborative research links between the universities.

The fund covers travel and subsistence costs for staff to undertake short-term visits in both directions. Visits should enable collaborators to develop outputs and outcomes that leverage external funding.

2019 fund

The call for the 2019 fund will open on Monday, 13 May 2019 and the deadline for applications is Friday, 28 June 2019. Download the guidelines and application form.
