University of Aberdeen has new £100,000 fund to strengthen European links
The University of Aberdeen has announced that it has a £100,000 fund to help maintain and strengthen its European research links.
Principal George Boyne announced the fund last month at an event celebrating the University of Aberdeen’s close links with Europe, stating that is intended to protect and enhance the University’s European research links, bolstering its activities with partners through initiatives such as the AURORA network.
Speaking about the launch of the £100,000 fund, Professor Boyne explains, “We have a long history of successful research links and successful research bids with partners across Europe, and we want to ensure this continues. As the UK leaves the EU, our commitment to continuing to work closely with our European partners is undiminished and this fund will help us to make the most of the new circumstances we find ourselves in.”
He continues, “The fund will help new links to be formed and existing links to be strengthened, ensuring that our long history of developing innovative research with European partners will continue and that together we will be at the forefront of research addressing the global challenges of our time. We have a long history of European connections which dates to the University’s foundation in 1495, and as we approach our 525th anniversary in just ten days’ time it’s important that we reaffirm our links to Europe with a clear message that our shared story of success will continue.”
The University of Aberdeen is a leading institution in pan-European research projects, with almost 1,500 joint research publications with European institutions over the last ten years and over £47m in EU funding.
