About: The Australia-Germany Joint Research Co-operation Scheme is a joint initiative (PDF 1.2MB) of Universities Australia and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Germany’s national agency for the support of international academic cooperation.
It fosters research collaboration of the highest quality between Australian researchers from Universities Australia member universities and German researchers from German universities and research institutes.
The scheme supports exchanges for Australian researchers to spend time at partner institutions in Germany and for collaborating German researchers to spend time at Australian universities. Researchers must be working on a joint research project with their German counterparts, rather than simply furthering their own individual research in Germany. The inclusion of early career researchers is a significant focus of this scheme.
Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)
Application due: 23 June 2017. Apply here.
About: The ACRF is a ‘seed’ funding body and is therefore interested in applications for larger scale research projects with value over and above the amount sought directly from ACRF. We expect applicants to leverage ACRF grants to secure any ‘gap’ funding and also to feature multi-disciplinary teams, collaborations and evidence of the translational impacts at a clinical level (with patients).
