The University of Maryland (UMD) and Ulster University in the United Kingdom have launched a new program to support joint research collaboration.
The partnership aims to help scholars at both institutions leverage their research strengths, identify complementary areas of expertise, and explore potential collaborations that could lead to external funding.
Last October, UMD and Ulster University invited researchers to submit joint research workshop proposals in all fields of knowledge.
Proposals had to be submitted jointly, by at least one member of the faculty from each institution, and involve several Ulster and UMD scholars as well as post-doctoral fellows and/or graduate students. Complete submission guidelines can be found at: research.umd.edu/ulster.
The winners of the 2015 Ulster-UMD Joint Research Workshops are:
- Yiannis Aloimonos, Computer Science, UMD, and Sonya Coleman, Computer Science Research Institute, Ulster University
