Collaborative Research Grants
Collaborate With The Defence Sector
DSI’s Collaborative Research Grants can help Victorian universities connect with potential collaboration partners within the Australian and international defence community. Up to $50,000 is available to provide seed or exploratory funding for innovative research projects.
Research collaboration with private companies can open up new worlds of opportunity and can be an important channel for research funding and career progression. Finding the right partner means access to equipment, data, expertise, new ideas or funds from business and government.
We can help champion your research interest areas to the defence sector and can help you connect with potential partners within the Australian and international defence community.
To encourage more researchers to take advantage of the grants, preference is given to new collaborations and for projects with immediate or potential leverage.
