Four Global Challenge Steering Groups identify priorities that are informed by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The RDF provides a mechanism for the Steering Groups to stimulate research initiatives. The RDF provides grants of up to £10,000 , for one year, to augment institutional funds in fostering research collaborations among academic staff (faculty members) at partner universities. The RDF supports work across four WUN Global Challenges that lie at the heart of our mission: Responding to Climate Change, Public Health (non-communicable diseases), Global Higher Education and Research, and Understanding Cultures. Grants from the RDF are intended to help stimulate larger collaborative projects that will strengthen WUN and make the collaborating partners competitive for major awards. Funds may be used to support such things as exploratory research initiatives, planning workshops, faculty exchanges and the formation of collaborative networks.

WUN’s Research Development Fund is an annual competitive fund to bring together researchers to undertake research that addresses global challenges. Applications are open to researchers from WUN member institutions. Themes for 2019 include one on ‘Responding to Climate Change.’ Grants are up to £10 thousand.
