Colleagues are invited to apply for funding up to the value of €10,000 - €25,000. The call will be open from Friday, 1 February until Friday, 15 April 2019 (midday UK time). A guidance document and application form are now available on the International Office web page.

Tϋbingen is one of Durham’s Strategic Partners and both institutions wish to develop a stronger bilateral relationship. The first round of the competition took place last year and a total of c.€100,000.00 was awarded to five, joint Durham – Tϋbingen research projects across the 3 faculties.
