Looking to the future |
We are proud to be making a significant joint investment, in partnership with the University of Nottingham, to support partnership development and research collaboration with leading universities and key public and private organisations in Brazil. As part of our engagement we have established a joint research investment fund with FAPESP and offer PhD scholarships and Visiting Fellowships.
Under a new scheme, funding is available for academic staff from UNESP to undertake fellowships in Birmingham and vice versa. The first call has now closed. There will be a further call in 2015.
We are thrilled to have won the Outstanding International Strategy Award in the 2014 Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards (THELMAs). The award honours Birmingham’s bold approach to secure its position in Brazil as the UK higher education institute (HEI) partner of choice.
