The ACU is pleased to announce the new Coventry University Fellowship. Forming part of the ACU's established Fellowships programme, this new award will support research mobility between Coventry University and ACU member institutions in Australia, Malaysia, Pakistan and South Africa.

Researchers will be able to apply for funding to undertake a collaborative research visit at one of these Coventry University research centres:

Dr Joanna Newman, ACU Chief Executive and Secretary General said: 'I'm delighted that Coventry University has become the latest ACU member institution to host one of our fellowships, helping us further our commitment to drive collaboration between universities across the Commonwealth. This new fellowship will highlight Coventry University's expertise in these three cutting-edge research areas, help strengthen our networks and facilitate new research partnerships.'

Professor John Latham, Vice-Chancellor of Coventry University said: 'We are very much a global institution, driven by an ethos that learning has no borders. Sharing knowledge is the foundation of good research so we're very pleased to be part of the ACU's Fellowship programme. We're looking forward to developing links with like-minded partners on the programme.'
