Call for Applications – 2012 BlueSky Grant
Sir Zelman Cowen Universities Fund Blue Sky Research Grant
Recognising that many great scientific discoveries are based on once blue-sky, fanciful ideas looking for a backer, the Sir Zelman Cowen Universities Fund has established a grant, to provide such backing.
The Fund now seeks applications, made according to guidelines below, for the SIR ZELMAN COWEN UNIVERSITIES FUND Blue Sky RESEARCH GRANT
- The Grant will comprise an award of AUS$100,000 for 1 year, commencing January 2012, for a research project in an emerging area such as (but not limited to) organ/tissue regeneration where researchers will aim to use the funds to gain sufficient momentum to be competitive in larger funding systems. Preference will be given to imaginative proposals with good scientific rationale and potential to make a significant innovative advance in human health.
