Strategic Partnerships Office


The Cambridge-LMU Strategic Partnership seeks to encourage joint research, teaching and training activities, as well as academic, staff and student exchange, between the University of Cambridge and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU). The partnership is cross-disciplinary, covering broad areas in the Humanities and Cultural Studies, Law, Economics and Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, as well as Medicine, and will develop over the course of an initial five-year funding period.

The webpage for the partnership can be viewed here. A full list of the Cambridge-LMU Strategic Partnership awardees for 2019 can be viewed here.


Call for Proposals for 2020: Research, Teaching and Visiting Scholars

Proposals will be judged both on their individual quality and the overall spread of disciplines and type of collaboration. In this second round of funding, we envisage being able to support around 30 teaching and research projects. Grants made by the programme are understood expressly as seed-funding and not as an end in themselves. Special attention will be paid to the award of grants to applicants with clear potential for attracting external funding and/or furthering the overall strategic aims of the partnership. Please see the application form below for further details.
