The Berlin University Alliance (BUA) and the University of Melbourne have issued a second call for joint research proposals within the framework of their partnership. The call is intended to further strengthen scientific cooperation between the University of Melbourne and the BUA member institutions - Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin. In the future, the partnership’s primary focus will be on graduate funding.
Projects are sought which particularly focus on joint training for junior scholars. The call seeks to establish thematically oriented, international graduate schools as well as joint doctoral programs. Doctorates should be awarded bi-nationally by the participating institutions. Proposals must be submitted jointly by one member of the University of Melbourne and at least one member from among the BUA partners.
The closing date for applications is 19 October 2020.
