The Linkage Projects scheme

promotes national, and international, collaboration and research partnerships between key stakeholders in research and innovation (STEM) including higher education institutions, government, business, industry and endusers. Research and development is undertaken to apply advanced knowledge to problems, acquire new knowledge and as a basis for securing commercial and other benefits of research. From $100,000.00 to $1,500,000.00, Closes 19 December 2017

The Future Fellowships scheme

supports research in areas of critical national importance by giving outstanding researchers incentives to conduct their research in Australia. The aim of the Future Fellowships scheme is to attract and retain the best and brightest mid-career researchers.

At present many highly qualified mid-career researchers choose to work overseas to further their careers due to lack of opportunities in Australia. The Future Fellowships scheme addresses this problem and will significantly boost Australia’s research and innovation capacity in areas of national importance.

Future Fellowships provide four-year fellowships to outstanding Australian mid-career researchers. In addition, the ARC may award the Administering Organisation up to $50 000 of non-salary funding per annum which may be used for personnel, equipment, travel and field research costs directly related to the Future Fellow’s research. Close Date & Time: 22-Nov-2017 5:00 pm (ACT Local Time)
