Competitive research grants

Strategic partnership grants & Blue Sky project grants
Amount: $25k
Deadline: Thursday, August 3rd 2 2017

The Henry Halloran Trust continues to focus on the key issue of infrastructure. One of the challenges in this space is not so much the infrastructure hardware or engineering but the challenges of putting this infrastructure into place – what could be called infrastructure implementation. This is one of the greatest challenges for the 21st century as the world grapples with accelerating urbanism. Moreover, whilst this infrastructure includes physical infrastructure such as roads and railway lines it also includes a range of other infrastructure that a modern city needs to function effectively.

In its current funding round, two types of project funding are available;

  • Strategic partnership grants
    The first is project funding for strategic partnership grants. Strategic partnership grants are grants where the Trust shares research funding in conjunction with other agencies.
  • Blue sky project grants
    The second type of project is what the Trust is calling Blue Sky project grants. The Trust will promote exploration and research into innovative ideas and concepts.

The maximum amount available $25,000.

Applications for funding should be submitted to the Trust’s Administration Manager - Ms Kim Beecroft () on the Research Project application form by 3pm on Thursday August 3rd . Please submit a Microsoft Word file. Applicants will be notified regarding the outcome of their application by 13 October.
