Final ARC guidelines for linkage projects funding
The Australian Research Council's 'Linkage Projects' is part of the National Competitive Grants Programme introduced in 2001.
'Linkage Projects' is an application-based programme available for individual researchers or research teams.
'Linkage Projects' aims to:
* encourage and develop long-term strategic research alliances between higher education institutions and industry in order to apply advanced knowledge to problems, or to provide opportunities to obtain national economic or social benefits
* support collaborative research on issues of benefit to regional and rural communities
* foster opportunities for postdoctoral researchers to pursue internationally competitive research in collaboration with industry, targeting those who have demonstrated a clear commitment to high quality research
* provide industry-oriented research training to prepare high-calibre postgraduate research students
* produce a national pool of world-class researchers to meet the needs of Australian industry
'Linkage Projects' supports collaborative research projects between higher education researchers and industry and identifies an allocation to projects of benefit to regional and rural communities. Proposals must contain an industry contribution, in cash and/or in kind.
