The Booster Fund

The University of the North launches the Booster Fund. As the name suggests, the Booster Fund is designed to boost and accelerate the achievement of the Research and Innovation Strategy (RIS3) objectives and the ambitions of the University of the North, as defined in the Knowledge Agenda. The Fund has an amount of €250,000 to award annually.
