BEIJING, CHINA 28 May 2019 - The British Council, together with the Ministry of Education, China have announced the winning proposals from the first round of seed funding under a new partnership initiative designed to boost multilateral education partnerships. Over 28 universities from 12 countries will benefit from an initial £420,000 investment. Proposals covered studies in healthcare, policing education, food safety, manufacturing, renewable energy and global leadership transformation.

  

Carma Elliot, Director British Council, China said: "The UK has a reputation for quality education and building collaborative education partnerships globally. This programme will help further this reputation by connecting more UK institutions to international opportunities; especially those materialising in China and amongst Belt and Road Initiative countries.” The winning proposals were selected from over 100 global applications, in which institutions had to demonstrate the mutual benefit collaborations would bring in the areas of innovation and international collaboration growth, especially in areas of common interest.

  

Carma Elliot added: "Solving global challenges requires the brightest minds from across the world coming together, showing how education is not confined to national borders. The projects announced today reinforce our commitment to enhancing the UK's excellence in education and innovation at home and around the world."
