Happy to announce that UNIL just joined the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN)

UNIL just joined the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN). This network, founded in 2000, is composed of 22 member universities (see list below).   WUN is strongly involved in research.

Through its Research Development Fund, WUN provides support to establish collaborative research that falls within four globally significant themes:

  • Responding to Climate Change (food security, plastics, sustainability, etc.)
  • Public Health (non-communicable disease)
  • Global Higher Education and Research (theoretical and applied approaches)
  • Understanding Cultures (migration, cultural heritage, etc.)

A call for projects is launched each year in July, with a deadline in October. An email will be sent to you as soon as the 2020 call will be published. In addition, WUN fosters mobility, especially for young researchers, through its Research Mobility Programme. The conditions of UNIL’s participation to this scheme are yet to be defined.   The participation to WUN will be coordinated by the International Relations Office, with the contribution of a UNIL committee involving UNIL researchers. We are looking forward to participating in this network which will offer excellent collaboration opportunities on important topics with colleagues from renowned universities. You will find more information about WUN on the website of the International Relations Office. Mr Denis Dafflon, Director, is available to answer any question you may have: denis.dafflon@unil.ch, 021 692 20 26. With my best wishes and greetings,   François Bussy     WUN members
