Our students, graduates and staff to enrich the world


Providing fantastic opportunities for BU staff

Fusion Investment Fund

Our Fusion Investment Fund provides fantastic opportunities for BU staff to apply for an allowance to support a range of practical initiatives where research, education and professional practice all inform each other. This unique combination is at the very heart of what we do at BU and we believe that the best lecturers are those who are not only engaged in research that can change the world around them, but are also working with businesses in their area of specialism and our students, who are able to develop and co-create research ideas with staff. The Fund assists with launching projects and activities which contribute to the wider BU vision of creating a worldwide network of researchers who are internationally-recognised as part of a world-class learning community, enriching the world.

There are three strands of the Fusion Investment Fund:

>> Co-Creation and Co-Production

>> Study Leave

>> Staff Mobility and Networking
