Launch of a Tripartite Partnership in Neuroscience
- 24 July 2013
The University of Oxford has enjoyed a successful collaboration with McGill University in Canada since 2009 in the area of neuroscience. This has provided funding for workshops and small collaborative projects.
This has been a great success and has benefited both institutions, adding diversity and enrichment to their research programmes. However, the level of funding in this scheme has been relatively low and therefore the impacts modest. To address this, the partnership has been developed into a tripartite scheme including the University of Oxford, McGill and the prestigious Zentrum Fur Neurowissenschaften (ZNZ), Zurich (a partnership of neuroscience groups in Zurich University and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology).
