Knowledge Exchange (KE) Funding Exercise 2013/14

Knowledge Exchange (KE) Funding Exercise 2013/14

The University Grants Committee (UGC) has confirmed that the annual special allocation for KE to UGC-funded institutions will continue for the 2012-15 triennium to enable them to build up their capacity and broaden their endeavour in KE.

With input from the faculty representatives on the KE Working Group, the KE Executive Group awards most of the UGC's annual special allocation through the KE Funding Exercise for Faculty Capacity Building, Impact Projects and Student KE Projects. Allocations for Faculty Capacity Building and Impact Projects for 2013/14 have been made. Proposals for the Student KE Project Grant Scheme 2013/14 are being considered and the exercise will soon be completed.

The KE funding for Impact Projects aims to support projects that have the potential to create impact on society. Proposed projects may be technology-based or non-technology-related. Proposals are considered on a competitive basis.
