||What's in a Linkage Project for researchers
||The objectives of Linkage Projects are to:
- support the initiation and/or development of long-term strategic research alliances between higher education organisations and other organisations, including industry and other research end-users, in order to apply advanced knowledge to problems and/or to provide opportunities to obtain national economic, commercial, social or cultural benefits;
- provide opportunities for internationally competitive research projects to be conducted in collaboration with organisations outside the higher education sector, targeting those who have demonstrated a clear commitment to high-quality research;
- encourage growth of a national pool of world-class researchers to meet the needs of the broader Australian innovation system; and
- build the scale and focus of research in the national Science and Research Priorities
