How to Apply for a UNITWIN Network or UNESCO Chair

The application cycle for the 2014 UNESCO Chairs and UNITWIN Network Programme is now open.

All UK higher education institutions wishing to apply for the UNESCO Chairs and UNITWIN Network Programme must submit their application through the UK National Commission for UNESCO (UKNC). All proposals will be evaluated by the UKNC through a two-stage peer-review process.

Interested parties should apply using the Outline Proposal form provided in the documents sidebar. All applicants should read the accompanying guidance note and application criteria before applying. Please note that not all Outline Proposals will be invited to continue the application process and only a small number of applicants will be asked to submit Full Proposals each year.

Please inform the UKNC of your intent to apply, the name of your project title and domains/disciplines concerned, prior to submitting your Outline Proposal, to assist with the peer-review process.

For further information please contact Andrea Blick at the UK National Commission for UNESCO Secretariat.

If you are interested in applying for a UNESCO Chair or UNITWIN Network for a non-UK higher education institution, please contact the relevant National Commission for UNESCO or UNESCO headquarters.
