Academic Partnership Program Call for Joint Proposals with UIUC


OCRF is pleased to announce this Call for Proposals for Academic Partnership Program (APP) joint collaborative research proposals with the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). The APP presents a unique framework for high quality, peer-reviewed, collaborative research projects that engage KAUST faculty with their counterparts at UIUC in the broad research areas of:

  • Environment Science and Engineering (including new materials and processes); and

  • Water Desalination and Reuse.

We encourage multidisciplinary research projects that include deep and significant collaborative elements, and are thus likely to make a lasting impact. The table below shows the deadline dates for this competition.
