03-Aug-2022  UMAP 2022 Research Net competition, open now

UMAP instituted the UMAP Research Net program to promote research collaboration and facilitate cooperation among member institutions across the network. Cross-border higher education opportunities around the world have grown considerably through the mobility of students, academic staff, programs/institutions, and professionals. Driven by this global trend, Research Net aims to promote academic mobility and collaboration, and to promote effective interaction and exchange among scholars, researchers, and educators across cultures. 

The 2022 Research Net Theme is: UN Sustainable Development Goals and Student Mobility in Asia and the Pacific. The scope of the proposed research project should be designed to be completed within 6 months. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: 

  1. Research related to student mobility programs or intercultural experiences focused on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, ideally at UMAP member institutions; 
  1. Research related to UMAP student exchange in the Asia-Pacific region; 
  1. Research related to capacity building and partnership development in UMAP member institutions for Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) or other virtual exchange models.
