Research is at the heart of what the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) does. WUN supports a diverse range of activities across all the disciplines and particularly encourages projects of an interdisciplinary nature. Information on the wide range of current WUN research collaborations can be found on the WUN website.

If you would like to get involved in a WUN collaboration or if you have a project or idea which might be able to make use of the WUN network, please contact Dr. Susan Jim, the Bristol WUN Development Manager.
