There are a number of funding streams currently available for collaborative projects between The University of Nottingham and The University of Birmingham.

Information about the following funding streams can be found below:

The Education Partnership Fund (EPF)

The Education Partnership Fund (EPF) is a dedicated stream of funding to support learning and teaching projects, and has been made available for the first time in 2017.

The EPF is designed to support a small number of projects that investigate challenges faced by both universities, and lead to the development of innovative, evidence-based practices that support student learning. The universities welcome bids from any aspect of educational enhancement, however, would particularly encourage bids that address one or more of the following priority topics: Transformation not Transition, and Assessment and Feedback. The closing date for applications is Wednesday 22 March.

The Strategic Collaboration Fund is designed to support research and professional service collaborative ventures between the two universities. The fund is comprised of two streams: Creativity (for initial engagements) and Accelerator (for forging substantive activities). The closing date for applications is Wednesday 5 April.

The Birmingham/Nottingham/FAPESP Call for Research Proposals

The Birmingham/Nottingham/FAPESP Call for Research Proposals is also still open, with an application deadline of Monday 20 March.
