Featured opportunity: Australia China Science and Research Fund Group Missions

4 July 2013

The Australia-China Science and Research Fund (ACSRF) is jointly managed by the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research and the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST). Funding is available to support Australia-China Group Missions.

Group Missions
Group missions are visits by Australian groups to China or Chinese groups to Australia to achieve specific purposes related to research and research-driven innovation. Group mission activities may include:
  • Early and mid-career researcher exchange programs with Chinese partner/s
  • Research-related workshops and symposia with Chinese partner/s
  • Research-related visits and secondments of Australian researchers to China (including cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional missions)
  • Research-industry missions to China
The Australian Government will contribute a maximum of AUD$45,000 funding for each group mission. Australian Government funding will be applied primarily for Australian out-bound missions.

Only one application can be submitted per institution so interested research teams must submit the completed application form, including a letter of support from the proposed Chinese partner/s, to Jane Zhang at by 12noon on Monday 22 July 2013 for an internal selection process.
