Josep Maria Garrell, Rector of RLU, and President of the 2015 Aristos Campus Mundus Association, signed the results of the first ACM Research Grants Call. The call opened last December and the deadline for applications was 15 January 2015. This initiative aims to finance the best joint projects conducted by research groups from the three universities that form the ACM Campus of International Excellence: Deusto, Comillas and Ramon Llull.

Funding was granted to 8 projects that cover very diverse specialist areas: from sustainability and corporate social responsibility to health, sport and technology. The total budget for this call is 82,000 € with a maximum of 15.000€ per project.

The following projects were awarded funding:

An extension of the Optimization Water – Energy Model by means of a Qualitative Multi-Criteria Decision-Making tool.

Two special interest mentions were also awarded to two projects for their participation with ACM’s American partner universities. These are shown in Appendix II. The first special mention went to a project on gender competences in communication studies and the second one addresses innovation in the European Union’s university system by implemation of role play and simulation.
