The UGPN Research Collaboration Fund (RCF) has been an integral part of the network since its inception. To date the annual fund has supported 27 research projects, covering a range of topics including carbon economies, bio-nano interfaces, genes and behaviour, international trade, visitor impacts and mathematical modelling. In July 2015, six projects were selected for funding including two trilateral and four bilateral projects. Topics included aerosol emissions, the modelling of disease, storm water and air quality and nuclear physics. The fifth call for RCF Funding opened on the 7th March, with a deadline of the 3rd May 2016.
