Adelaide-Nottingham Alliance: new education fund


August 7th, 2023

The Adelaide-Nottingham Alliance has opened a fund to encourage further collaborations in global education between the two universities. 

The alliance aims to deepen deepen engagement between the University of Adelaide and the University of Nottingham, increase the impact of our research and generate further opportunities for international collaboration, while developing the next generation of students with a truly global mindset. 

To support this, the Alliance Partnership Education Seed Fund Programme will support collaboration in areas of education, training and mobility. 

The programme opens for applications on Monday 7 August 2023 and will close at midnight Sunday 27 August 2023 UK time (8.30am, Monday 28 August 2023 in Australia).  

The programme will support engagement, networking and the building of relationships between peers, academics and professional staff, sparking potential future collaborations between Nottingham and Adelaide. 

The programme will encourage initiatives that: 

  • Share best practice in teaching and learning, and student experience initiatives  
  • Foster cross-cultural understanding for students  
  • Develop an active alumni community to promote the alliance develop professional links between the two universities.  

All applications will be considered; however, applications will be seen favourably if they fit within the alliance’s priority areas for collaboration: 

  • Global Food Systems  
  • Intelligent Health  
  • Sustainable Futures  

More on the fund and how to apply 

This new programme follows a seed fund (currently closed) set up to encourage and develop high-quality research collaborations between our universities. 

The Adelaide-Nottingham Alliance builds on years of collaboration in research and education, including an International Doctoral Training Partnership, enabling PhD students to undertake a research degree at both universities at the same time. 

In May 2023, Vice-Chancellor Professor Shearer West and colleagues from Nottingham visited South Australia for the inaugural Adelaide-Nottingham Alliance Symposium, which discussed our commitment to work together to address the challenges shared by Australia and the UK, and our partners across the world, and invited experts and Joint PhD students to share their insights.
