Twelve new projects to receive funding as part of the University of Melbourne and Berlin University Alliance partnership
News from Oct 24, 2019
A total of twelve research projects by scientists and scholars working at the University of Melbourne, Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin will receive funding to support workshops, short-term research stays, and travel grants. Each project gets up to 50,000 euros. These seed-funding measures are meant to foster collaborative work on developing large-scale projects. They are part of the strategic partnership between the Australian university and the Berlin University Alliance. The original call for proposals was the first such funding opportunity within the partnership since it was formed in October 2018. The recipients were announced at the Australian Embassy in Berlin during a visit from University of Melbourne representatives.
The projects cover a wide range of topics, including teacher training programs, decision-making processes, and medical research on diseases such as multiple sclerosis.
