WUN Research Mobility Programme

The WUN Research Mobility Programme (RMP) is an opportunity for Maastricht University PhD students or research staff in any academic discipline – in existing WUN research areas and new areas with the potential to develop a sustainable WUN collaboration – to apply for funding to visit any Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) partner university.

The award aims to help facilitate research collaboration of early and mid-term career researchers leading to increased publishing, grant acquisition and training opportunities for all UM researchers.

The RMP provides a great opportunity to:

  • Advance your research by accessing research groups with expertise, rare facilities and data sets;
  • Widen the scope of research by establishing new and deepening existing links with your global peers;
  • Gain experience of new cultures by emerging yourself with new research environments;
  • Further your career development by strengthening your international profile.
