Funding for International Network

Dear all,

I am searching for a fund that would support researchers and clinicians creating a worldwide network, a bit like what COST actions does in Europe, but for a more world community. We are working on creating such a network focusing on driving and community mobility, for older adults and people with disabilities. Countries like Australia, Canada, Ireland, UK, Switzerland, Sweden, South Africa and Korea are involved right now, with about 10-14 universities. We have submitted a workshop for WFOT 2018, so we might have an opportunity to share what we are trying to do. We also have a first research projet under way in all those countries, but would like to find funding for the maintenance of our network.

Anybody have knowledge of such a fund?

Have a great day,
Isabel Margot-Cattin
