University of Sheffield: University of Ghana Pump-Priming Awards


The University of Sheffield and University of Ghana recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a view to developing a portfolio of collaborative research.

These awards are intended to initiate collaborations between research groups at the two universities with a view to building further on these in the future. Eligible costs/activities include workshops, network building, symposia, sandpits, travel, accommodation, subsistence and visa costs linked to these.

To apply for an award please work with an academic partner at the University of Sheffield to complete the online google form here. Note that the strongest applications will be developed in partnership between staff at the two Universities but all applications must be submitted by a Sheffield Principal Investigator (PI).


In the first instance there will be two application deadlines to this scheme at 6 month intervals. These are as follows:
