The Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) is a leading higher education and research network made up of 23 universities across the globe. Together they work to promote research collaboration and address issues of global significance. WUN has 90 active research initiatives engaging over 2 000 researchers and students in diverse range of projects.
By fostering and encouraging collaboration between its members, WUN brings together the experience, equipment and expertise necessary to tackle the big issues currently facing societies, government, corporations and education. Staff and students are encouraged to participate in WUN’s expansive and innovative portfolio of research activities.
WUN shares many of the same objectives as UCT, fostering international research collaboration through a developed global support framework that can address issues of global concern, affect decision making at policy level and unlock funding opportunities.
