The Research Mobility Programme (RMP) encourages personal and academic development of individuals, primarily early in their research careers, to equip them with the skills needed for future international academic success. The programme allows young scholars to advance their knowledge-base within their field of study, establish new contacts and mentors, and enhance their graduate dissertations through the experience gained in studying in other research cultures.
All WUN members waive any fees associated with the RMP, which are typically short visits of 2-3 months. The programme enables institutions across the network to exchange expertise, share access to rare facilities and establish new relationships at both graduate and supervisor level.
