The Global Engagement Office (GEO) has today launched the Global Engagement Funds 2016/17, a funding scheme supporting UCL academics to develop collaborations with colleagues based in other countries.

Led by faculty Vice Deans (International) and Pro-Vice-Provosts (Regional), the scheme offers up to £2,000 to UCL academics - from lecturers to professors - to drive forward the objectives of the Global Engagement Strategy.

From supporting research projects to developing student exchanges, last year’s funding assisted 75 UCL academics from across all 11 faculties to develop partnerships with international colleagues at 93 different institutions, based in 34 countries across the globe.

Rachel Corcoran, GEO Programme Manager, said: "The Global Engagement Funds are encouraging innovative collaborations across UCL to deliver global impact. We'd encourage all academics with an interest in developing or strengthening their partnerships in different countries to apply."

Applications for the funds close on 28 October 2016.
