Worldwide Universities Network
The Worldwide Universities Network is a network of 18 research-led universities that helps to build global research communities by supporting collaboration. It has members in Australia and New Zealand, the United States, South America, Europe, China and South Africa.
The WUN alliance exists to make significant advances in knowledge and understanding in areas of current global concern. By fostering and encouraging collaboration between members, WUN brings together the experience, resources and expertise required to address the challenges and opportunities currently facing societies, governments, business and education.
WUN invests its resources in four identified thematic research areas, titled Global Challenges:
- Adapting to climate change
- Public health (non-communicable diseases)
- Global higher education and research
- Understanding cultures
The University of Sydney is currently engaged in 31 international research collaborations under the auspices of WUN.
WUN Research Development Fund provides seed grants to facilitate collaboration among partners, with members encouraged to provide matched funding to leverage capacity.
