Summary on Grant Application Form
The University of Nottingham is widely recognized as a pioneer in the internationalization of research and teaching through the development of our overseas campuses in China and Malaysia, our membership of Universitas 21, and numerous specific partnerships with leading institutions across the world. Indeed, the Times described the University of Nottingham as "the closest the UK has to a truly global university".

We now wish to undertake a step change in the way that we approach global partnerships by establishing a new multilateral approach in which multiple research teams join up across multiple regions to tackle the most pressing global challenges.

We will drive this forward through a series of initiatives that develop global partnerships in three key priority themes across three geographic regions. Our three themes of Digital Economy, Energy and Quantum Technologies are all key priorities for the UK and are underpinned by critical mass funding at Nottingham, including large EPSRC portfolios. Our three regions of India, North America, and South Korea are strategically important for Nottingham, and have been chosen to strike a balance between building on established relationships with world-leading partners while also opening up important new opportunities.

We will fund a combination of catalyzing and integration activities. Ten catalyzing activities will deliver tailored programmes of visits and exchanges addressing specific areas of overlap with our chosen partners. These focused explorations will be integrated into a wider multilateral approach through theme-based roadtrips, high-level regional delegations, a final integrating workshop, and a reflective final report.
