CRC selection round now open

11 May 2012

Applications are now being accepted for the 15th Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) selection round.

The CRC program supports end-user driven research partnerships between publicly funded researchers and end-users to address major challenges that require medium to long-term collaborative efforts. The Program links researchers with industry to focus R&D efforts on progress towards utilisation and commercialisation.

There is no specific limit to funding available for each CRC project, but since 2008 the average annual funding has been AU$3.7million.

Researchers participating in a CRC bid should contact Steven Hermans for support in securing endorsement from the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research).

Closing date: 14 June 2012.
