Through agreement with the Emirates Foundation, the MEC established a funding programme in 2010 to support academic collaboration and knowledge transfer between LSE and Arab universities. The projects involve collaborative research or academic capacity building. The programme supports a minimum of four collaborative projects per year over ten years. At least two awards per year are made to projects involving collaborations with UAE universities.
Aims of the Programme
- To strengthen academic collaboration and knowledge transfer between LSE and Arab universities;
- To promote high calibre research by scholars at LSE and Arab universities;
- To support academic excellence at Arab universities.
