Kent-Ghent 2020: Joint call for projects

The University of Kent, with one of our longstanding international partners, Ghent University, Belgium, is pleased to announce the call for joint Kent-Ghent collaborative projects taking place in 2020.

The funding will support 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).

Since 2009, the Universities of Kent and Ghent have enjoyed a strategic international partnership covering activities in student exchange, Erasmus Mundus, co-supervision of research, joint research and the exchange of knowledge and best practice between staff in professional services.

Marking the tenth year of this partnership, we are increasing the funding available and seeking to support both small scale and/or exploratory initiatives as well as collaborations at a more advanced stage.

To date, over forty projects have been funded in a wide range of Kent Schools and Centres.  These include Anthropology and Conservation, Arts, Economics, Engineering and Digital Arts, English, European Culture and Languages, History, Kent Business School, Kent Law School, Medway School of Pharmacy, Physical Sciences, Politics and International Relations, Psychology, Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research, Sport and Exercise Sciences, Centre for Journalism, Centre for the Interdisciplinary Study of Film and the Moving Image.

Funding available: up to £3,000 per project (subject to meeting certain criteria)

How to apply: Applications are now open via the International Partnerships website.

Application deadline: 31 January 2020
