Global Challenges Funding Opportunities

The UOW Global Challenges Program has developed a range of funding schemes to harness the expertise of world-class researchers to solve complex, real-world problems – to transform lives and regions. This funding supports truly interdisciplinary research at UOW to effect transformation within our region and globally.

UOW:UOWD Research Collaboration Fund EOI

The University of Wollongong in Australia (UOW) and Dubai (UOWD) have each contributed to establish a $100,000AUD research fund to facilitate collaborative research between researchers at UOW and UOWD. It is our intention to award up to four grants of approximately $25,000AUD to teams undertaking collaborative research. Eligible research teams must include at least one researcher from each of UOW and UOWD, and interdisciplinary teams will be prioritised. It is anticipated that portions of grant allocations would be used to support research exchanges between Australia and Dubai.

To scope the demand for this research fund and to support the connection of UOW and UOWD researchers, we are calling for Expressions of Interest from researchers interested in accessing this funding.
