After a successful seed funding call for joint research proposals on the topic of global health, the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Berlin University Alliance (BUA) are pleased to intensify their collaboration by funding one three-year BUA-NUS Global Health Exploration Project.

The call goes along with the Berlin University Alliance’s second “Grand Challenge Initiative” addressing the field of global health as an emerging discipline, emphasizing on both global needs for new holistic health concepts and valuable scientific contributions. Being strategic partners, BUA and NUS recognize an emergent need for pooling their research expertise and resources in order to jointly contribute to the global grand challenges.

With this call for proposals, a joint “lighthouse project” will be selected to carry out intensive collaboration on a joint research topic over a period of three years. Up to 675,000 euros are available for applicants from the BUA side, and up to 600,000 SGD for applicants from the NUS, a total of almost 1.08 million euros. The funding starts on January 1, 2023. Funding requirement is a joint application of a team of at least two members of the partner institutions of the Berlin University Alliance and one member of National University of Singapore.

For further details, please refer to the call text.

The deadline for applications is August 8, 2022 at 2 p.m. Please submit your application via the Berlin Institute of Health: https://portal.bihealth.de/portal/
