Supporting academic and research mobility is essential for the long-term vitality of universities. The ACU is pleased to announce that ACU member, Coventry University, UK, will host two Fellowships in 2020.
As part of the ACU's established Fellowships programme, two Coventry University Fellowships are available to academic staff to support research mobility between Coventry University and ACU member institutions in Africa and India.
Researchers can apply for a grant to fund a virtual research collaboration at one of the following Coventry University research centres:
- Centre for Agroecology and Water Resilience
- Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations
- Institute for Future Transport and Cities
Each Fellow will receive a maximum grant of GBP 5000.
The Fellowships support collaboration at a distance by forging new research partnerships between Coventry University in the UK and ACU member universities in other countries.
ACU Digital Now is our commitment to ensuring that our vibrant global network continues to thrive not just in the short-term, while COVID-19 restricts global mobility and ways of working, but longer term too. As part of the ACU Digital Now strategy, this year’s ACU Fellowships will solely fund virtual collaborations.
Through the fellowship I took part in collaborative research, worked with professionals, received mentoring, enhanced training, and made connections which often led to further opportunities
