WTUN Exchange Programme 2023/24

Applications for the WTUN Exchanges Programme 2023/24 are now OPEN

We welcome applications from all member institutions. There are 18 grants available of £2000 each for staff (academic and professional services) and PhD students to visit another member institution. Exchanges are open to new projects, initiatives and teaching and learning opportunities as well as those that have been involved in previous rounds and wish to utilise the funds to continue their work.

The exchanges will provide opportunities for member institutions to explore or conduct activities stated in the WTUN Memorandum of Understanding included, but not limited to:

  • collaborative research between member universities;
  • capacity-building, including collaborative teaching initiatives among member universities;
  • developing position and policy statements;
  • facilitating links between world technology universities and industry, NGOs and SMEs.

The exchanges or joint research meetings must support the vision and purpose of WTUN as set out in the MOU.

This year WTUN would like to encourage exchange proposals within the WTUN focus areas:

  • Gender Equality
  • Innovation and Entrepreneurship
  • Good Health and Wellbeing
  • Sustainable Cities and Communities
  • Responsible Consumption and Production/Clean Water and Sanitation
  • Climate Action 
  • International collaboration between HE institutions (incl. Quality Education)

All proposals will be considered equally, however, in the of the event that we receive more applications for funding that spaces available (18) priority be given to new members and/or members who have not previously participated in the Exchange Programme.

WTUN Exchange Proposal and Agreement Form 2023-24

We encourage exchange applications which specifically seek to develop further international activities (joint modules, summer schools, joint research bids).

There will be a two proposal limit per member institution and therefore all proposals must be approved by the sending institution’s Operational Board Member
