Since 2009 the University of Kent and Ghent University have enjoyed a strategic international relationship within the context of an inter-institutional cooperation agreement. This agreement has been the framework for partnership activities in staff and student exchange, Erasmus Mundus, co-supervision of research, joint research and the exchange of knowledge and best practice between staff in professional services.
In order to stimulate further Kent-Ghent cooperation, since 2013 the two universities have put out an annual call to staff to submit proposals for collaborative projects.
2017 call for projects: We are pleased to announce the call for 2017. This call aims to support joint Kent-Ghent projects by funding mobility between colleagues at the two institutions (for example short-term staff/student exchange, seminars, workshops, preparatory meetings to establish longer-term collaboration such as double degrees, joint research projects and other activities such as those funded through the Erasmus+ Key Actions).
Funding available: Maximum funding available per project: £1,000 OR € 1,150,00
