Collaboration the first as a member of the University Global Partnership Network 

Researchers from University of Wollongong’s (UOW) School of Earth and Environmental Sciences will work alongside colleagues from Brazil, Germany, South Africa, Canada, India, Argentina and Uruguay in a five-year, $1.75 million project to study the geology of the Rio De La Plata Craton and the eastern Gondwana assembly. 

It is the first collaboration to come under the umbrella of UOW’s membership in the University Global Partnership Network (UGPN) and recently signed agreement with the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), the most prestigious state-based research and development funding agency in Brazil.

The project, led by University São Paulo (USP), runs from August 2017 to August 2022. UOW’s involvement is led by Professor Allen Nutman, the head of the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences in the Faculty of Science Medicine and Health.
